School Breakfast Program (SBP)

School Wellness Policy Resources

Last Modified: 09/03/2013

This module provides some excellent information on promoting and improving your breakfast program through use of your local school wellness policy. Since schools participating in the National School Lunch Program or School Breakfast Program are required to develop and implement a local school wellness policy, this can be a great way to collaborate with many potential partners across the school. The wellness policy provides teachers, administrators, the school board, parents, food service staff, and the community with a valuable platform for improving a school’s health/nutrition environments and bettering the lives of students on a daily basis. In this module, we have provided some materials that describe how the wellness policy can work for your breakfast program with specific policy questions and suggestions, as well as a resource document from Team Nutrition that describes (free!) additional materials you can use to promote your program.
