Strengthen Wellness Policies

All school districts must develop and implement wellness policies to improve nutrition and physical activity in schools. This federal requirement provides a great opportunity. New USDA final guidance on local wellness policies was released in July 2016. Join your district wellness committee and you can help write the policies addressing unhealthy food and beverage marketing. Need more information about wellness policies?
