Healthier Middle Schools: Everyone Can Help is a series of communication tools designed to help you engage teachers, 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. FNS 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 a print handout for teachers, 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.
These are available for schools, CACFP providers, sponsoring organizations, and state agencies that participate in or administer one of USDA’s child nutrition programs. All are welcome to download these materials and make copies. To download the file, please right-click on the link and "save link as."
We'd love to hear from you! E-mail Team Nutrition to let us know how your school is using these communication tools.
