A healthier future starts with healthy kids
USDA is continuing, improving, and expanding our efforts to support child nutrition and coordinating to break down barriers to good health. Our focus on healthy kids supports the goals of the White House National Strategy to end hunger and increase physical activity by 2030 so fewer Americans experience diet-related diseases. The benefits of healthy eating add up over time so to make the biggest impact, we must set kids up for success from the start.
