Is your snack SMART SNACK compliant? (Click here to calculate)

 

Balance is essential for any Wellness Policy. Key areas addressed at school include:

  • Nutrition education
  • Physical activity
  • Meals served using lowfat dairy products, lowfat protein choices, and whole grains.

At home, you can come up with a Wellness Policy of your own.  Here are a few suggestions. Serve 1% or nonfat milk.  Use cereals and breads with at least 3 grams of fiber per serving.  Serve fruits for snacks and offer vegetables throughout the day.  Limit the amount of time your child spends in front of a screen or monitor, and take family walks.
