Healthier Middle Schools: Everyone Can Help is a series of communication tools designed to help you engage teachers, principals, parents, food service managers and students in school wellness efforts. To support healthy food choices and physical activity at your school, a school-wide coordinated approach works best. USDA's Food and Nutrition Service is providing these resources under its Team Nutrition initiative to help you bring everyone together to promote student wellness and prevent childhood obesity.
Healthier Middle Schools: Everyone Can Help includes an audience-tested video and a print handout for teachers, principals, parents, food service managers and students. Focus groups across the country informed the development of these tools - so they reflect what the various audiences found to be motivational and realistic. View conversation starters for using these tools, based on focus group feedback.
