Serving up a School Culture of Health, Wellness & Nutrition

This guide is designed for school administrators, farm to school coordinators, teachers, health and wellness staff, and others interested in building a coordinated culture of health in elementary schools. It walks readers through a framework from assembling a school team and taking the pulse of the school to nurturing a school culture that values the important role that healthy food, nutrition education, and physical activity play in learning. It includes countless creative, field-tested ideas alongside nine real-life profiles of Vermont schools to build understanding and support your efforts in making schools healthier places to learn. The guide was created by VT FEED and the Vermont Agency of Education with support from USDA and Team Nutrition. Published by VT FEED.
