Quick moving congressional efforts to weaken school nutrition standards from the Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act of 2010 are underway and would significantly undermine the successes that schools are experiencing in improving the quality of school meals. It is critical that advocates continue to remind Congress that the nutritional improvements made for school meals are working!
