09/21/2017 - U.S. Reps. Rodney Davis (Ill.) and Jim McGovern (Mass.) introduced the bipartisan Healthy Breakfasts Help Kids Learn Act of 2017 (H.R. 3738). The bill would provide:
- An additional 6 cents in commodity support for every school breakfast
- Assistance to schools to help manage rising costs
- Expanded programs and menus to benefit more children
The bill aligns with the Academy's Recommendation for Child Nutrition Reauthorization requesting that Congress provide adequate funding for schools to purchase healthy, high-quality food for school meals and snacks.
