“To eliminate childhood obesity and inspire all young Americans to develop lifelong, healthy habits”
The goal is to stop the increasing prevalence of childhood obesity in the United States by 2010 and reduce the prevalence of childhood obesity by 2015 by fostering an environment that helps all kids pursue healthy lifestyles.
Healthy Schools Program
The Healthy Schools Program is designed to create a nationwide paradigm shift…in which the perception that a school environment that promotes healthy eating and physical activity is the norm and not the exception.
2. The only opportunity for schools to be nationally-recognized for their overall healthy school environments.
3. By virtue of its parent organizations, the Alliance has the unique ability to contribute to macro-level solutions for childhood obesity prevention.
How We Support Implementation of the Beverage & Snack Food Guidelines in Schools
The Navigator is an online catalog schools can use to create a shopping list of foods that meet the Alliance’s healthy snack guidelines. Schools simply browse the catalog, add items to their shopping list, and print.
The calculator will allow schools to enter values from nutrition labels and see if the product meets our guidelines (based on school level).
