Robert Wood Johnson Foundation
Healthy students perform better. Poor nutrition and inadequate physical activity can affect not only academic achievement, but also other factors such as absenteeism, classroom behavior, ability to concentrate, self-esteem, cognitive performance, and test scores. This toolkit provides information to help make schools the model for healthier environments, and will provide tools and resources to help ensure that school environments become the standard for healthy eating and active living. The information provided will offer promising solutions to problems that schools face in providing healthy food and opportunities for physical activity. (Contains 11 endnotes.)
