Healthy schools adopt policies and practices that empower students to eat better, move more, and feel their best. They offer nutritious meals and snacks, get students and staff moving with physical activity, and engage the entire school community in promoting healthy habits.
The result? Healthy schools experience higher attendance rates, greater academic success, increased family engagement, and reduced staff turnover.
