School wellness policies are a vital tool that parents, students, teachers, school food service staff, school administrators, and local communities can use to address children’s nutrition and health needs. This paper is one in a series of occasional white papers produced by the Congressional Hunger Center that offer a concise “primer” on key aspects of policymaking and implementation on childhood hunger and nutrition issues. The series is intended to provide a broad range of stakeholders with information they can use in seeking to improve the nutrition and health status of children. It is part of The CHILD Project (Children’s Hunger Initiative on Learning and Development), supported by the ConAgra Foods Foundation.
