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.
