Healthy Out-of-School Time Wellness Policy Implementation Guide for Parks and Recreation Agencies

The purpose of this guide is to provide your agency with real-life examples, best practices and steps to help you implement a wellness policy and create sustainable changes at your site.

A wellness policy is a written document made up of several policies and language that outline an agency’s dedication to children’s health and wellness. Some programs use policies to define the types of foods that can or can’t be consumed on premises, while others may set the requirement for minimum number of physical activity minutes during program hours. Many policies also focus on staff wellness to emphasize healthy role-modeling.
