Part 1 of the Wellness Policy Series, Growing a Healthy Foundation for Learning: What’s New in Local School Wellness Policies webinar recording is now available!
In July 2016, the USDA updated requirements for school local wellness policies (LWPs). As a result, most school districts will need to realign and strengthen existing LWPs. This session outlines the guidelines, reviews the latest research, and highlights current policy work at the state and local level.
This is the first in a two-part webinar series on LWPs. The second webinar, Local Perspective on School Wellness Policy Implementation! (Wellness Policy Series, Part 2), scheduled for Wednesday, September 13, 2017 at 1:00pm ET, will highlight the local perspective on implementation. This series is hosted by the Alliance for a Healthier Generation, Voices for Healthy Kids, and the Center for Science in the Public Interest.
