Schools

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.  

Using the latest research and best practices in children's health, Healthier Generation's Healthy Schools Program provides a workable, customizable framework to help you create and sustain a healthy school. 

More than 40,000 schools nationwide are already making healthy changes as members of the Healthy Schools Program.
