Parents for Healthy Schools is the new website that was released by the CDC this past week. The website contains information for parents on creating a healthy school environment, advocating for their children, and teaching their children the importance of health. The website includes resources related to school nutrition, managing chronic health conditions, physical education and activity, how to help parent teacher organizations and associations, and wellness committees, among others. In addition to resources, the website provides practical application and strategies to implement these to create a culture of health at schools.
