School Nutrition And Physical Activity

Why is there a wellness committee? Click to learn more about ACT1220.

ACT 1220 is about more than the Body Mass Index or Soda Pop machines. It is about including state and local leaders, parents, and school personnel in an effort to provide students with additional options and opportunities. Food choices are not being removed by the recommendations from ACT 1220 but are being enhanced with low-fat, low-sugar options. Physical activity is re-instated in the school day and parents and local community leaders are given information concerning the health and nutrition of students in their community. The recommendations from ACT 1220 are a work in progress and will be re-visited as the Child Health Advisory Committee continues its work.
