Local School Wellness Policies and School Wellness

The Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act of 2010 (HHFKA) requires all local educational agencies (LEAs) participating in federal Child Nutrition programs to establish and implement, for all schools under its jurisdiction, local school wellness policies that meet minimum standards designed to promote sound nutrition, student health, reduce childhood obesity, and provide transparency to the public on the school nutrition environment.  This website is dedicated to helping local educational agencies find the resources they need to meet recommendations in these areas.

Ideas to Celebrate!

  • Small treat for the 100th student in the lunch line (paper hat, ribbon, pencil, etc.)
  • Guess how much 100 pinto beans (grapes, raisins, gold fish crackers, etc.) weigh
  • Build a trail mix with different snacks; fill snack bags with 10 each of selected snacks for a 100 piece trail mix
  • Plant 100 seeds and see how many grow by spring break
  • Have students collect 100 cans of fruits, vegetables and/or beans and donate them
  • Host a taste test with healthy foods/snacks that are 100 calories (or less)
