SNA Joins Alliance for a Healthier Generation’s America’s Healthiest Schools Campaign

2016-09-01

SNA is proud to join the Alliance for a Healthier Generation and 60 other partners in the America’s Healthiest Schools campaign.

The month-long campaign, which kicked off August 29, is designed to elevate the importance of healthy school environments as the country’s school children return to classes for another year of learning. SNA and its members understand the value that nutritious school meals tie into other health messages in schools to encourage kids in developing lifelong healthy habits. Parents, teachers, school staff, community members and even students are urged to join the movement.

The campaign is expected to highlight the inspiring efforts of more than 325 National Healthy Schools Award winners and motivate other communities to take steps in creating a culture of health in their own neighborhood schools. The campaign will promote the Alliance’s Healthy Schools Program, which provides access to a myriad of resources about both physical activity and school nutrition. The campaign will use social and traditional media channels to spread the word that America’s healthiest schools are helping students to reach their greatest potential.

SNA encourages its members and allies to visit www.healthiergeneration.org/healthiestschools to learn more about the campaign, access a list of the 2016 Healthy Schools Award winners (is your school on the list?) and join the movement today!

The Association’s partnership in the America’s Healthiest Schools campaign follows on the heels of its support of the August School Healthy Policy Campaign, also coordinated by the Alliance for a Healthier Generation. School nutrition professionals have long been advocates of school policies that encourage healthy eating and activity all across the school community.
