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

Association, which co-founded the Alliance for a Healthier Generation with the Clinton Foundation.

Schools participating in the Healthy Schools Program have access to national experts, in-person and online trainings, and resources that include sample menus and product lists to help meet federal standards. With the assistance of the Alliance, many schools started serving healthier meals in advance of the implementation deadline. Similarly, the Alliance is supporting schools in their efforts to serve healthier snacks and beverages in compliance with the “Smart Snacks in School” nutrition guidelines that will take effect in the 2014-15 school year. The Alliance is available to help any school assess their current snack offerings and swap less healthy items with products that meet the new criteria.

“Providing students with a healthy school nutrition environment is integral to reversing the childhood obesity epidemic,” said Dr. Howell Wechsler, chief executive officer of the Alliance for a Healthier Generation. “I am proud to say that every single one of our recognized schools—in addition to thousands more also participating in the Healthy Schools Program—is prioritizing our children’s health by improving the meals served to students.”

The Recognized Schools
The 267 recognized schools represent more than 25 states and the District of Columbia. Each school distinguished itself with healthy eating and physical activity programs and policies that meet or exceed stringent standards set by the Healthy Schools Program. Schools are eligible for National Recognition Awards at the Bronze, Silver, or Gold level based on the standards they achieve.
