Model Wellness Policy Language for Water Access in Schools

By providing drinking water as an alternative to soda and other sugar-sweetened beverages, schools can promote children’s health overall and play an important role in the fight against childhood obesity. This US-based “policy package” features a set of model goals and actions for schools to incorporate into their wellness policies to help promote access to free, safe drinking water. This package also highlights examples of how schools across the US have partnered with other agencies and private companies to fund drinking water programs.
