“Schools have the unique opportunity – even the responsibility – to teach and model healthful eating and physical activity, both in theory and in practice. Improving children’s health likely improves school performance, and it may even help a school’s bottom line. Therefore, schools have a vested interest in improving the nutrition and increasing the physical activity of their students.”
