Did you know The Final Rule: Local School Wellness Policy Implementation under the Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act of 2010 was passed in July 2016? This double sided handout provides an overview of the requirements.

The Alliance for a Healthier Generation has a “Basic” district-level wellness policy template that meets the minimum Federal standards for local school wellness policy implementation under the final rule of the Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act of 2010. This easy to use template allows you to choose goals that suit your school’s needs. Find it here.

Two important documents will guide you through the process of evaluating, updating and implementing your schools local wellness policy: The School Wellness Policy Checklist and the Triennial Assessment Tracking Form.

The first document is the Wellness Policy Checklist. School Wellness Committees can use this to guide them through the evaluation of their school’s local wellness policy to ensure that their  policy meets the current USDA minimum standards.
