Next week PreventObesity.net plans to launch a new campaign asking Supporters to urge their state head of Child Nutrition Programs to stop letting schools sell junk food, and to implement the Smart Snacks in Schools guidelines.
This year when kids head back to school there are federal guidelines in place to help kids make healthier choices—now we need states to fully implement the standards, to make sure that all kids benefit. Because children spend so many hours at school, it is critical that schools adopt policies that support healthy eating and physical activity.
We hope we can count on each of you to help spread the word about this upcoming campaign. Are you working on something related to Smart Snacks? Contact us at [email protected] and we may feature your story on the PreventObesity.net blog.
