School Environment Continues to Get Healthier

First Lady Michelle Obama and Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack announced last week that new school wellness policy rules include a new mandate to limit marketing to children. This and other regulations due to be implemented in the next school year, as required under the 2010 Healthy Hunger-Free Kids Act, are making the entire school environment healthier for children.

Mrs. Obama announced that in addition to schools addressing nutrition education and physical activity, these wellness policies will ensure foods and beverages marketed to children in schools are consistent with the recently released Smart Snacks in Schools standards.

The Smart Snacks in Schools regulation, set to be implemented next school year, requires food and beverages sold to students during school meet nutrition standards that are similar to the IOM report. In her remarks, the First Lady also announced the nationwide expansion of a successful pilot program that will ensure that children who are in need of nutritious school meals receive them. In the next school year, this program reaches as many as 9 million children, and impact 22,000 schools. This will provide children healthy school meals, which have been shown to improve educational attainment in the short and long term.

The Academy supports and applauds registered dietitian nutritionists who serve on school wellness councils, work in school nutrition services and others who have been working to make the school environment healthier.
