10 Web Resources to Galvanize Your School’s Commitment to Coordinated School Health

There are many ways and many resources, but here are some external resources I’ve found helpful and hope you do, too:

  • The Nebraska statewide Coordinated School Health Policy, adopted March, 2010

  • Partnership For A Healthy Lincoln offers resources including national and local trend data on the obesity epidemic.

  • Action steps from the Let’s Move! campaign to assist schools.

  • Healthy alternatives to the traditional ‘junk food as reward’ classroom celebrations offered by the CT Department of Education.

  • Information from the Partnership for a Healthier America about the Chefs Move! To Schools campaign to place visiting chefs in schools to help educate children about healthy eating.

  • Read about the impact the Alliance is having on beverages sold in schools by getting full calorie sodas out of schools.

  • 2010 Youth Risk Behavior Survey results; tables, graphs, and trends analysis.

  • Empirically validated findings demonstrating the connection between exercise and intellectual performance, displayed in a user-friendly table with source reference noted.

  • American Alliance for Health, PE, Recreation and Dance legislative and policy advocacy information.  Get connected to the key issues at state and local levels.

  • President’s Council on Fitness, Sports & Nutrition: includes general nutrition information, fit facts, Shape of the Nation, and Physical Activity and Dietary Guidelines for Americans.
