A 101 Briefing on Child Nutrition Policy
Expired event. For reference only.
10:30 am - 11:30 am
Please Join First Focus on Children and The Education Trust on July 26th from 10:30-11:30 AM ET for a background briefing on child nutrition policy with experts from USDA, the American Heart Association, and the Center for the Science in Public Interest. Food and nutrition insecurity among children, particularly children of color and children from low-income backgrounds, remains stubbornly high, and dietary diseases among children are increasing. The implications of federal nutrition policy on children’s health, development, and academic well-being are numerous.
It is more important than ever that organizations dedicated to improving the lives of children and families work together to elevate the importance of these issues. There are several upcoming opportunities in congress and at the regulatory level to voice your concerns. This briefing will provide background on these issues and the landscape for organizations to engage thoughtfully.
