& Diet Related Illness
Our District has developed a Wellness Policy that is focused on improving the health of students. The policy was developed by the health and wellness committee that includes teachers, parents, administrators, and Food & Nutrition Services staff.
Sharing the Message of Wellness
One of our goals is to share the message of nutrition and wellness via our department's Web site that emphasizes the importance of nutrition AND fitness. Our site provides information on the nutrition and fitness for teachers, parents, and students, as well as, a variety of learning tools.
Key Areas of our Wellness Policy
Balance is essential for any Wellness Policy. Key areas include:
- Nutrition Education
- Physical activity
- Other school-based activities that are designed to promote student wellness.
As a participant in the National School Lunch and Breakfast programs, Boise School District promotes nutrition education, physical activity and school-based activities to support student wellness and healthy school environments.
