Balance is essential for any Wellness Policy. Key areas include:
Parents, Guardians, teachers, and students are all invited to share ideas and questions concerning our Wellness Programs. Each schools Governance Council meets monthly where a Wellness report is given. Stakeholders are also invited to attend our quarterly District Wellness Meeting at the Board of Education, lower level. Dates for SY 2018 are November 15, February 15 and final reports on May 15th.
Another important part of the Baldwin County Wellness Program addresses foods sold at school and fundraisers involving foods. All foods sold at school in vending machines, a la carte in cafeterias and in school stores must comply with the Smart Snack requirements. You may go to https://foodplanner.healthiergeneration.org/calculator/ to see if your favorite snacks comply! Foods not meeting these requirements may be sold after school.
