It's Crunch Time for Childhood Obesity... Reauthorize the Child Nutrition Act This Year!

Today, our nation's kids are struggling to maintain healthy lifestyles, complete with proper nutrtion and physical activity. But through the reauthorization of the Child Nutrition Act, Congress can be part of the solution. Please do your part to get the job done on the Child Nutrition Act this year and ensure that the final bill includes:
  • Increased funding for the school meal programs to help improve nutrition standards
  • Restrictions on the junk food sold in cafeterias, snack shops, and vending machines
  • Guidelines to strengthen local wellness policies that establish the nutrition and physical activity goals of school districts

Support the Child Nutrition Act and help it get passed when Congress reconvenes after the November midterm elections! Contact your representative today through
