Child Nutrition Bill

The US Congress has approved the Michelle Obama-endorsed child nutrition bill.

On December 2, the US Congress gave a final approval to school lunch legislation that will improve healthy food standards in schools. Michelle Obama has been lobbying for the bill, which will require the inclusion of more fruits and vegetables in school meals. The bill, which passed by a vote of 264 to 157, will go to President Obama for final approval. The Secretary of Agriculture will now have the authority to give nutrition guidelines for food served during school hours, requiring schools to provide more whole grains in addition to the fruits and vegetables, and a federal reimbursement will be available to schools to counteract the cost of the healthier meals.
