5. Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act

For the first time in 15 years, school meal nutrition standards were updated and for the first time in 30 years there was increased funding because of this act. Because of this, public schools offer healthier meals for over 50 million children.

Whole grains, fruits and vegetables, and less saturated fats and sugars are encouraged and stressed.
