School meals are a key source of nutrition for many kids. The Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act of 2010 improved the healthfulness of school food. But more action is needed to ensure all kids have access to healthy meals at school.
In 2010, the Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act (HHFKA) made significant improvements to school foods and other child nutrition programs. The HHFKA established national nutrition standards for all food sold in schools, strengthened local wellness policies, improved the nutritional quality of school meals, strengthened accountability of school meals, and improved meal financing to support healthy school meals.
