President to Sign Child Nutrition Law

President to Sign Child Nutrition Law

Bill will strengthen nutrition programs for children.

The White House says President Obama will sign into law the Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act of 2010 next Monday at Harriet Tubman Elementary School in Washington, D.C. The President will be joined by the First Lady, Cabinet Secretaries, Members of Congress, and advocacy group leaders who worked diligently to promote and ultimately pass the act. 

The Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act will improve the quality of school breakfasts, lunches and other foods sold in schools while also strengthening nutrition programs that serve young children, including WIC and the Child and Adult Care Food Program. The bill is an important advancement of the Obama Administration's goal of solving the problem of childhood obesity within a generation, which First Lady Michelle Obama has championed through the Let's Move! Initiative.
