While appearing on “The Dr. Oz Show,” Donald Trump blamed budget problems for schools’ failure to provide nutritious food for students.

“A lot of schools aren’t providing proper food because they have budget problems and they’re buying cheaper food and not as good a food,” Trump said, responding to a teacher’s question on childhood obesity. He also said obesity is “a hereditary thing, too.”

The teacher also asked Trump what he would do about schools that don’t give students enough exercise and recess time.

“When I went to school I always loved sports and I would always — I loved to eat and I loved sports and it worked,” Trump said. “Because I could do both. A lot of schools today don’t have sports programs and that is a big problem. I would try and open that up. I’m a big believer in the whole world of sports.”
