Momsrising.org is asking mom’s to become school wellness heroes to help make sure physical education and healthy foods are a part of school wellness policies.
Kids spend most of their day at school, eating most of their calories and expending most of their energy at school, so it is vital for the school environment to be healthy. Currently, over 99% of schools are meeting new healthy snack standards, but with the new healthy school meal standards being rolled back around sodium, non-fat and flavored milk and whole grains, there is still so much work to do to make sure kids are in a safe and healthy school environment all day.
You can help support health and wellness in schools before the end of June while school districts update their wellness policies. Get involved by dropping off a school wellness kit in person or by email to help build momentum around healthy school policies.
A toolkit to become a school wellness hero includes talking points for the school district, resources that include strong language around marketing and PE (physical education) and a sticker that shows how you support your healthy kids!
