AbstractThe Improving Child Nutrition and Education Act of 2016 (H.R. 5003) does not live up to its name. The legislation would threaten food security for nutrition assistance recipients, decrease the healthfulness of school meals, and may further increase health disparities between children from low- and high-income backgrounds. The American Public Health Association (APHA) opposed this legislation in a letter to Congress along with more than 750 other public health organizations. We urge readers to join APHA in opposing this legislation.
