Childrens Health

Dear Editor:

As children's health remains a national health concern, passage of the Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act couldn't have come at a better time. The bill will make for healthier schools by improving school meals, removing junk foods and sugary beverages from snack shops and vending machines, and strengthening wellness policies.

I'd like to personally thank Representative Jim Matheson for voting for this strong child nutrition legislation to help curb unhealthy eating habits among children and premature health conditions such as high blood pressure and type 2 diabetes.

The President must now make it official and sign the Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act into law. The sooner our kids have access to healthier food in schools, the sooner we can reduce obesity rates.
