Healthy Hunger-Free Kids Act Case Study


The Center for Science in Public Interest published the case study, How a Public Health Goal Became a National Law to provide insights into policy strategy and advocacy best practices that resulted in passage of the Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act of 2010 (HHFKA)

HHFKA was a landmark law that removed soda and other junk food from schools and resulted in unprecedented improvements to school meals with more whole grains, fruits and vegetables, and less salt and trans-fat. This case study discusses key lessons learned during the process, and provides research for advocates to assist in their efforts to develop nutrition policy changes.
