The Archdiocese of Baltimore Child Nutrition Program is committed to the optimal development of every student. The Child Nutrition Program believes that in order for students to have the opportunity to achieve personal, academic, developmental, and social success, we need to create positive, safe, and health-promoting learning environments at every level, in every setting, throughout the school year.
Research shows that two components, good nutrition and physical activity before, during, and after the school day, are strongly correlated with positive student outcomes. This policy outlines an approach to ensure environments and opportunities for all students to practice healthy eating and physical activity behaviors throughout the school day.
