Vermont Healthy Schools Resource

The Resource complements the Vermont Nutrition and Fitness Policy Guidelines, and is a valuable tool for implementing school wellness policies for nutrition, physical education and physical activity.

For each policy there is a corresponding page with:

The Healthy Schools Resource is a joint project of the Vermont Departments of Education and Health, and the Agency of Agriculture. Our thanks to everyone who contributed to this resource — providing school examples, content review, and implementation ideas.
