Jessica Donze Black Participates in Twitter Chat on Healthy School Foods

Kids’ Safe & Healthful Foods Project, MomsRising.org, Jamie Oliver’s Food Revolution team, and PreventObesity.net are co-hosting a tweet chat this Friday, June 15 at 12 p.m. ET to discuss childhood obesity and the impact of snacks and beverages sold in schools.

Four out of five American voters favor national nutrition standards that would limit calories, fat, and sodium in snack and à la carte foods sold in U.S. schools and encourage the consumption of fruits, vegetables, and low-fat dairy items, according to recent research from the project. The U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) is expected to propose such standards in the near future.

If you have a question or comment to share ahead of time, please email [email protected] with your question or comment as a tweet.

Agenda for America

A collection of resources to help federal, state, and local decision-makers set an achievable agenda for all Americans

Quick View

Data-driven policymaking is not just a tool for finding new solutions for emerging challenges, it makes government more effective and better able to serve the public interest. In the coming months, President Joe Biden and the 117th Congress will tackle a number of environmental, health, public safety, and fiscal and economic issues—nearly all of them complicated by the COVID-19 pandemic. To help solve specific, systemic problems in a nonpartisan fashion, Pew has compiled a series of briefings and recommendations based on our research, technical assistance, and advocacy work across America.

Data-driven policymaking is not just a tool for finding new solutions for difficult challenges. When states serve their traditional role as laboratories of innovation, they increase the American people’s confidence that the government they choose—no matter the size—can be effective, responsive, and in the public interest.
