We are a low income family. I am a single mother and I provide school with low protein lunches 5 days a week. It is extremely difficult to provide my child with enough food to keep him healthy by keeping his blood phenylalanine levels at recommended levels and also keep him from being hungry. He is very hungry all the time because without food coverage we use higher protein foods that take up his daily allowance before enough quantity could be consumed to provide satiety.

The Medical Nutrition Equity Act will provide key support for those Americans who rely on medical foods to survive and thrive.
