Healthy Food at Schools
Creating a healthier food environment at school is a key strategy for reducing childhood obesity. This US-based webinar provides an overview of how policy, systems and environmental strategies can improve the food landscape in schools, including strategies for ensuring healthy beverages in school vending machines, increasing access to fresh drinking water, restricting non-nutritious food and beverage advertising on school grounds, and establishing a “healthy food zone” in school neighborhood.
