Improving child nutrition is the focal point of the Healthy, Hunger-Free
Kids Act of 2010. The legislation authorizes funding and sets policy for
USDA's core child nutrition programs: the National School Lunch Program,
the School Breakfast Program, the Special Supplemental Nutrition
Program for Women, Infants and Children (WIC), the Summer Food
Service Program
, and the Child and Adult Care Food Program. The
Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act allows USDA, for the first time in over
30 years, opportunity to make real reforms to the school lunch and
breakfast programs by improving the critical nutrition and hunger safety
net for millions of children.
