President Bill Clinton to Recognize 267 U.S. Schools for Efforts to Prevent Childhood Obesity
Date:9/29/2013

Little Rock, Arkansas (PRWEB) September 29, 2013

Tomorrow, President Bill Clinton will honor 267 schools at the Clinton Presidential Center in Little Rock, Ark. for creating healthier environments for children to learn and staff to work. The awards ceremony is part of the eighth annual Healthy Schools Program Forum. In addition, President Clinton will share data showing that each of the 267 schools—and nearly all schools that participate in the Healthy Schools Program and have such data—are meeting or exceeding recently updated federal nutrition standards for healthy school meals.

The Healthy Schools Program is a project of the Alliance for a Healthier Generation, which was co-founded by the American Heart Association and the Clinton Foundation.

“Giving children the right kind of food is crucial to their well-being and success,” said President Bill Clinton, co-founder of the Alliance for a Healthier Generation along with the American Heart Association. “The Healthy Schools Program proves that, with proper planning and support, there seems to be no reason why all districts can’t meet nutritional standards and serve their students healthy, enjoyable meals.”

The Alliance works with more than 18,000 schools across the nation in every state, reaching more than 11 million students, as well as teachers and other school staff. Its Healthy Schools Program is funded primarily by the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation (RWJF).

“The schools we’re honoring are creating a culture of health for their students and staff,” said Risa Lavizzo-Mourey, MD, RWJF president and CEO. “They’re helping to ensure that students have the good nutrition, physical activity, and healthy habits they need to be ready to learn now and to succeed in the future.”
