What are the School Health Guidelines to Promote Healthy Eating and Physical Activity?


MUSIC Since 1980, there has been a
dramatic rise in childhood obesity. Schools have an opportunity to
help prevent obesity and promote physical activity and healthy
eating at an early age and possibly change the
course of students’ lives. The CDC publication School
Health Guidelines to Promote Healthy Eating and Physical
Activity outlines evidence-based recommendations for schools
to address healthy eating and physical activity. These guidelines were developed
in response to the serious effects associated with
inadequate physical activity and unhealthy eating. This training is based
on the CDC report, School Health Guidelines to
Promote Healthy Eating and Physical Activity. In addition to the information
provided throughout this training, you are encouraged to
refer back to the full report for more detailed information on
strategies to promote healthy eating and physical
activity in schools. The full report is intended to
be a reference guide for you to identify evidence-based
practices that can be implemented in schools and also
includes extensive information on practices to
achieve the guidelines.
