School Wellness Policies
School wellness policies often serve as the backbone of a healthy school community.
They are written documents that guide schools and districts in their efforts to create and support healthy school environments. Schools that participate in federal Child Nutrition Programs such as the National School Lunch Program and School Breakfast Program are required to develop and implement a wellness policy.
Want to make healthy changes in your school or district? Start a wellness committee or team at your school to talk about the health and wellness of students and staff.
