Healthy Eating

Children spend more time in schools than in any other environment away from home, and healthy students come to school ready to learn.

Active Living

Students who are physically active are stronger, have healthier bodies, experience reduced stress, and have increased self-esteem. Exercise can also help control weight and enhance academic performance.

Tobacco-Free Living

Schools play a vital role in intervening with youth who are experimenting or using commercial tobacco products or e-cigarettes.  Prevention efforts focus on providing assistance with reviewing and strengthening district commercial tobacco policy, as well as presenting prevention and cessation information for students and staff.
