State Policies

School food, nutrition, and physical activity policies are excellent ways that schools and school districts can institutionalize their commitment to providing students with the tools and knowledge they need to live healthy lives now and in the future. Much of this information is relevant to the preschool environment as well.  Many states, schools and school districts have already passed their own nutrition policies. Read more about these bills and policies at the National Farm to School Network Policy Page.
