Watch: POTUS Signs the Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids ActPublished by Angel on Tuesday, December 14, 2010 at 2:06 pm.
Yesterday President Obama signed into law the Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act of 2010. First lady Michelle Obama came to the event, held at the Harriet Tubman Elementary School in Washington, D.C. The act will increase the number of children in school lunch programs by 115,000, (let’s hope that number grows), increase the reimbursement rate for school districts meal programs by six cents, and increase health guidelines for school vending machines.
Michelle Obama launched the Lets Move! campaign in February, 2010, hoping to combat the childhood obesity epidemic in the UnitedStates. The campaign aims to increase healthier food in schools, lobby for better nutrition labeling, and increase the physical activity for children. Congrats Mrs. O!
