Alliance for a Healthier Generation awards 114 schools for outstanding health and nutrition environments.

Posted on Aug 14, 2009 by Maggie LaBarbera

The Alliance for a Healthier Generation has named the 114 outstanding schools in the US.  These schools are recognized  for building healthy learning environments for students and staff, receiving a bronze, silver or gold award.

These schools are to be commended for putting kids health and nutrition as a priority.  During a time of budget cut backs, I am sure this was not an easy task and required the full support and commitment of the entire community.

See the list of schools who have received awards for creating healthy school environments.

The Alliance for a Healthier Generation offers schools the Healthy Schools Program which provides schools a comprehensive approach to helping schools create healthier environments.

The program works with the school to create healthy changes in the environment that meet the specific needs of the community.

The goals are to:

  • improve access to healthier foods
  • increase physical activity before and after school
  • enhance nutrition education
  • establish school employee wellness programs
Best of all, this program is free to schools.  I applaud their efforts because to create a new generation of children that is nutrition minded and values exercise it is going to take all of us contributing in all areas of a child's life.  And we know school is definitely a big part of a child's life!!!

Learn more about the program and have your local school participate.
