Call to Action: Creating a Healthy School Nutrition Environment

The Call to Action challenges the provincial government, boards of education, school communities and public health to acknowledge and act on their roles in establishing an environment that is supportive of healthy eating in Ontario schools. A healthy school nutrition environment provides students with the skills, social support, and environmental reinforcements needed to foster healthy eating behaviors among students. The OSNPPH School Nutrition Workgroup have made nine recommendations to address the importance of healthy eating in the school context and presents the link between nutritional health, learning and chronic disease in children and adolescents.
