School Wellness

Local wellness policies are an important tool for parents, local education agencies (LEAs) and school districts in promoting student wellness, preventing and reducing childhood obesity, and providing assurance that school meal nutrition guidelines meet the minimum federal school meal standards.

The state and county school wellness policies can be found on the policies page under the School Wellness section. These policies provide information regarding nutrition and physical activity standards. Each county varies, so it is important to review the wellness policy for your individual county.
