The US Government is helping kids eat healthier in school. There was an act that was passed in December, called the Healthy Hunger-free Kids Act that empowers the US Agriculture department to set food standards at schools.

 Childhood obesity  affects one in five American children aged 6-19 according to the Centers of Disease Control and Prevention. This act is designed to help children eat healthier and hopefully develop healthy eating habits early enough to curb obesity.
