Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act

President Obama signs Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act.

On Monday, December 13, President Obama signed the Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act of 2010 into law. The act was one of the largest issues of 2010 and one of Michelle Obama’s biggest causes. The act aims to provide all children with healthy food options. According to the White House, 31 million children receive meals through school programs and 17 million children are living in food-insecure homes. Additionally, one out of three children are considered overweight or obese. In addition to many other points of the law, the Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act will provide funding for educating children about healthy food, increase access to healthy food for low-income children, and help schools build community gardens.
