With the Child Nutrition and WIC Reauthorization Act of 2004, PL 105-268, the U.S. Congress established a requirement for all local agencies (including public and nonpublic, as well as Residential Child Care Institutions) with a federally-funded National School Lunch Program (NSLP). The local agencies are required to develop and implement wellness policies that address nutrition and physical activity by the start of the 2006-07 school years. Criteria are required in meeting the objective: nutrition education, physical activity, nutrition standards, nutrition promotion, and other school-based activities. New rules for public input, transparency and implementation were added with the Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act of 2010, PL 111-296.
