Health Students are Better Learners
Research shows a strong connection between healthy behaviors and academic achievement (e.g., grades, standardized tests, graduation rates, attendance). Healthy students are better learners, and academic achievement bears a lifetime of benefits for health. However, youth risk behaviors, such as physical inactivity and unhealthy dietary behaviors are consistently linked to poor grades and test scores and lower educational attainment. Schools are an ideal setting to teach and provide students with opportunities to practice healthy behaviors, helping them establish lifelong healthy behaviors.


The Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act of 2010 (HHFKA) requires all local educational agencies participating in federal Child Nutrition programs to establish and implement, for all schools under its jurisdiction, local school wellness policies that meet standards designed to promote sound nutrition, student health, reduce childhood obesity, and establish a school environment that promotoes students' health, well-being, and ability to learn.


Join our Wellness Committee
LCSD#2 invites our stakeholders (students, parents, staff and community) to participate in our wellness committee to development nutrition promotion, education, and physical activity goals, as well as review, update, and implement our Local School Wellness Policy. You can email stacy.jenkins@laramie.org, or join us at our next meeting: TBD 


Nutrition Standards in School Meals
The National School Lunch Program (NSLP) and the School Breakfast Program (SBP) are designed to promote the health and well-being of children by providing nutritious meals to children in public and private schools and residential child care institutions (RCCIs).


All Foods Sold in Schools
The U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Smart Snacks in School standards put in place practical, evidence-based nutrition standards for snacks and beverages sold in vending machines, school stores, snack carts, á la carte lines and in-school fundraising. This is an important part of promoting healthier options while kids are in school, helping them develop lifelong healthy eating habits.
