At lunch time today, President Obama signed a bill called ‘The Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act’ to give schools more money for healthy school lunches. Michelle Obama’s 'Let’s Move Initiative' definitely set the stage for schools to receive $4.5 billion to help fight obesity among schoolchildren.
The Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act will enhance federal subsidies to school lunch programs by 6 cents per meal. In addition, it will provide more regulation of the kinds of food available to students in the lunch room and at the vending machines.
This is a long overdue measure to help kids stay healthy at school.
