Elliott Gluck (Former Staff), Sarah KyleNutrition
Healthy nutrition is an essential building block of a healthy childhood, so First Focus Campaign for Children advocates based on the idea that no child in our nation should go hungry, and every child should have access to healthy and nutritious food.
Congress is set to reauthorize essential child nutrition programs for kids for the first time since the passage of the Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act in 2010, which is set to expire on September 30, 2015. This fact sheets examine the progress that act been made over the last five years, as well as the opportunities for improvement in this year’s reauthorization to ensure that children have access to healthy meals at school.
