The Healthy Hunger Free Kids Act requires USDA to issue healthy nutrition standards for all foods sold in schools.  The Act gives USDA the power to eliminate the unhealthy foods in vending machines, snack bars, "a la carte" lines in cafeterias, and other foods sold outside of the federally-reimbursed school meals.

Join us for this webinar:

  • Learn about USDA's plans, process and timeline for the healthy foods in school rule;
  • Share your recommendations for the nutrition standards and enforcement necessary to make the new school regulations a success;
  • Discover new research findings on the positive impact of "competitive" food standards; and
  • Identify action steps, tools, and resources that will be useful in continuing to advocate for healthy foods in schools now.

Speaker(s):

Nancy Lyons, Child Nutrition Division, USDA
Sarah Samuels and Lisa Craypo, Samuels and Associates
Jim Weill and Madeleine Levin, Food Research and Action Center

Certificate of attendance will be issued.
