As WebMD reports, The Obama Administration’s implementation of the Healthy Hunger-Free Kids Act of 2010 is having unintended consequences. 

“There’s no question that schools should encourage healthy eating,” says Jeff Stier. He is a senior fellow at the National Center for Public Policy Research, a conservative think tank based in Washington, D.C.  But “the USDA is … leaving active children so hungry that they tend to leave the school lunchroom to buy less nutritious and more calorie-dense foods. Ironically, the Hunger-Free Kids Act is leaving kids hungry.”
