One in three children is overweight or obese. Schools, and communities, that support healthy foods in schools can help stem childhood obesity. Given that kids, spend most of their waking hours in school supporting healthy school meals will help children, today and in the future.

Parents and faith communities can work in tandem with schools to accomplish this.

Not sure how?
