District Wellness Guidelines

student wellness

The Healthy, Hunger Free Kids Act of 2010, was signed as a public law on December 13, 2010. This law contains several provisions that impact school nutrition programs, such as local school wellness policy implementation and for the first time nutrition standards for all foods sold on the school campus during the school day. 

Several schools have formed School Health Councils, collaborative groups between school faculty and staff members and parents. These Councils work to promote a variety of healthy eating and physical activity events throughout the school year, such as Family Fitness Nights and school-wide walking programs. 

The NPSD continues to provide healthy eating and physical activity resources to help build healthy schools, homes and communities. Check out the links below for suggestions on healthy snack choices and classroom celebrations, as well as a variety of useful wellness links.

The district’s wellness policy and the programs organized thus far are part of the journey of the district-wide wellness implementation process. For more information and future plans of the wellness policy or to be a member of our Student Wellness Committee, please contact the School Nutrition Services Coordinator at froehlml@npenn.org.
