Many children spend most of their waking hours and eat up to half their daily calories at school. If we want our kids to be healthy and active over their lifetimes, schools have a crucial role to play in cultivating healthy nutrition, physical activity habits and overall wellness. When kids are healthy and active, we know they perform better academically and even behave better in the classroom.
Together, with parents, local policy makers, school administrators, students, and other members of the community, we can create a school environment that ensures our kids have access to nutritious meals and regular physical activity.
