Take Action


Parents: Stock healthy foods (such as small muffins, milk, cheese, fresh fruit, cereals, raw veggies, sandwiches and yogurt) for your children to take to school for breakfast, lunch or as a snack.

Reinforce school efforts at home. Be a positive role model for your children. Try to have at least one meal each day together - either breakfast, lunch and/or supper.

Encourage discussion of school nutrition by the board and administrative team; arrange for your community nutritionist to present key facts.

Order the Healthy Eating at School videos and show them at your next PAC, board or staff meeting. Discuss what you can do to make nutrition happen at your school.
