The 5-Year Plan for National Childhood Nutrition: Don’t Undo the Progress 
US News and World Report, June 16, 2015

Five years ago President Obama signed the Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act into law, and through its school meal nutrition improvement provisions, more children are responding positively to healthier school meals, eating more fruits and vegetables at school, and wasting less food. The act is up for reauthorization this year, and “[g]roups such as…the Food Research and Action Center…have begun advocacy and awareness campaigns to ensure that Congress understands that we must not roll back the regulations that are producing real changes in school food, child feeding programs and children’s diets,” writes Ann Cooper in this op-ed.
