Child Nutrition Promotion and School Lunch Protection Act of 2009

On March 5, 2009, Rep. Lynn Woolsey (D-CA) introduced H.R. 1324, the “Child Nutrition Promotion and School Lunch Protection Act of 2009.” The bill would require the development of new science-based federal nutritional standards governing all foods and beverages sold outside of school meal programs but within the boundaries of school campuses. These standards would apply to foods sold at any time during the extended school day, including when activities are held that are primarily under the control of a school or a third party on behalf of a school. The bill has been referred to the House Committee on Education and Labor.
