School Health Guidelines
Schools play a critical role in improving the dietary and physical activity behaviors of children and adolescents. Schools can create environments supportive of students’ efforts to eat healthy and be active by implementing policies and practices that support healthy eating and regular physical activity and by providing opportunities for students to learn about and practice these behaviors.
The health of students is linked to their academic success. Both physical activity and healthy eating may help improve academic achievement.4–7
