House Education Panel To Begin Markup Of Child Nutrition Bill This Month

July 2, 2010: 08:07 AM EST
The child nutrition reauthorization bill introduced in June will not only improve children’s health, it will boost access to healthy meals and generate more year-round meals for children, witnesses at a hearing of the U.S. House Education and Labor Committee said on July 2. Committee Chairman George Miller (D-CA) promised that markup of the legislation will begin after the July 4 recess. According to Miller, the “Improving Nutrition for America’s Children” bill will greatly expand access to healthy meals in schools, child care and community based settings, and will for the first time establish nutrition standards for foods sold outside of the cafeteria, such as in vending machines. Committee statistics indicate that in 2008, 16.7 million children lived in food insecure households – more than 22 percent of U.S. children.
