Wellness Policy

Good nutrition and regular physical activity affect the health and well-being of children. Furthermore, research suggests that there is a positive correlation between a student’s health and well-being and his/her ability to learn. Schools can play an important role in the developmental process by which students establish their health and nutrition habits by providing nutritious meals and snacks through the schools’ meal programs, by supporting the development of good eating habits, and by promoting increased physical activity both in and out of school.

Hamilton County ESC has set goals in an effort to enable students to establish good health and nutrition habits. Read our HCESC Wellness Policy.
