Addressing the Health Education and Nutrition Environment Needs of Students

Academic Article

Abstract

  • The association between the health of children and adolescents with their academic success is gaining more attention nationally. Consequently, the United States federal government has enacted policies to support environmental health improvement in schools, while health- and education-focused organizations have partnered to offer guidance in support of improved student health and well-being. Still, despite federal policy and guidance documents, schools experience many challenges to implementing school wellness initiatives. This article outlines how schools can employ their internal “health champions” with community support to improve the health education and nutrition environment needs of students.
