Action for Healthy Kids (AFHK) fights childhood obesity, undernourishment and physical inactivity by helping schools become healthier places so kids can live healthier lives. 2

3 Who is Action for Healthy Kids? Our goal is to create school communities where children learn how to make healthy choices from the minute they walk in the front door to the minute they leave at the end of the school day. What is a policy? An official statement that addresses the needs of a school system, school or classroom Based on values, convictions and beliefs Can play a major role in changing school culture School Wellness Policies The 2004 Child Nutrition and WIC Reauthorization Act required districts to have a wellness policy that includes: Nutrition guidelines for foods served on school campus Goals for nutrition education, physical activity and other school-based activities A plan for measuring implementation 3

4 School Wellness Policies Wellness policies must be developed and implemented by local parents, teachers, administrators, school food service, school boards and the public. School Wellness Policies The 2010 Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act added: Required reporting on policy content and implementation Required periodic assessments Goals for nutrition promotion Learn more about the Healthy Hunger-Free Kids Act and local wellness policies at: Action Steps Read your district policy and any school policies or guidelines.

The eight components assist schools to include all of the support services provided for students and staff. The Coordinated School Health Model Health Education Physical Education Healthy & Safe School Health Services Nutrition Services Counseling, Psychological, Social Services Health Promotion for Staff Family/Community Involvement 9

10 Identify Outcomes Research based outcomes of the Child Nutrition and WIC Reauthorization Act of 2004 are being identified, school nurses can consider positive outcomes for the health of students. Current research indicates the diet of the average student is less than ideal. Role of the School Nurse School nursing is a specialized practice of professional nursing that advances the well-being, academic success and lifelong achievement and health of students. 98% (52 million) children spend their days in school 75.1% of schools have a school nurse Overweight and Obesity in Schools -The Role of the School Nurse (PS) It is the position of the NASN that school nurses have the knowledge and expertise to promote the prevention of overweight and obesity and address the needs of overweight and obese youth in schools. The school nurse collaborates with students, families, school personnel, and health care providers to promote healthy weight and identify overweight and obese youth who may be at risk for health problems 10

11 Overweight and Obesity in Schools -The Role of the School Nurse (PS) The school nurse refers and follows up with students who may need to see a health care provider. The school nurse educates and advocates for changes in the school and district that promote a healthy lifestyle for all students. School Nurses Role in Overweight and Obesity in children 1. Capacity to reach large number of youth from diverse groups 2. Provide education and resources and promote a culture of health in schools 3. Promote and advocate for healthy lifestyles for all students 4. Identify resources/tools and referrals for children and parents/guardians 5. Promote policies that increase access to healthful foods and daily physical activity Call to Action School Nurses have promoted and participated in: Walking paths around schools Fruit first in cafeteria line Fruit in slices More nutritious breakfasts Breakfast / classroom Before during and after school walking programs Promoting water Nutrition ed in classroom Color days for fruits and vegetables Wellness policy leaders Changes in vending machine options Pedometers Playgrounds & gyms open non school hours Biggest loser personnel Vegetable gardens 11

12 The Case For School Nursing Advocacy, Access and Achievement: Making the Connection Every parent, student and teacherdeserves a School Nurse References Sheetz, A.H. (2011). Why Is a School Health (Wellness) Advisory Council Important for School Nursing Practice? NASN School Nurse, 26(5), Kelly, M. & Schantz, S. (2011). School Nurses Can Make a Difference With We Can! NASN School Nurse, 26(2),

13 Get Active, Eat Healthy, Make a Difference Nancy Sandbach, VP, National Dairy Council 73,000 Schools Students are motivated to make better food choices such as fruits, vegetables, whole grains and dairy and be more physically active before, during and after school. Schools have increased access to nutrient-rich foods and sustained opportunities for physical activity Continually improve school environments, with school stakeholders supportive of nutrient-rich foods and physical activity 13

14 65% of educators say Fuel Up to Play 60 helps them achieve their school wellness goals. 70% of educators say Fuel Up to Play 60 is helping students make healthier food choices. 62% of educators say Fuel Up to Play 60 is helping increase the amount of time students are physically active at school.

I was very lucky in that Mr. Remelius, our principal, is very interested in health and wellness. I also have a wonderful secretarial staff who have been supportive and understanding. 15

16 RMS Wii Fit Club students once a week Wiis are also used at lunch, as incentives, at summer camp Grab-n-Go Breakfast Students travel to cafeteria and lobby between periods (8:30) to purchase breakfast. Grab-n-Go Breakfast Two stations are set up each morning by our nutrition service. (contract by school district). 16

17 Trivia Tuesdays Students are asked a nutrition question during announcements and get a chance to answer during lunch. Those students who answer correctly have a chance to win a prize. Ambassadors take care of passing out and picking up answer sheets. Fitness Fridays! Every Friday we spend at least one minute or 3!! Exercising or dancing to a song (chosen by the Unit) during Homeroom. You ll Love Yoga Part of the funding provided by FUTP 60 was used to start a yoga class for students who were interested. Yoga is used to help build strength, flexibility and confidence. Correct breathing can help to decrease stress (THEY LOVED IT!!!). 17

18 Taste Testing at RMS Ambassadors help with handing out cheese samples for taste testing. We also tasted fresh veggies with low fat dip, frozen yogurt and fresh fruit. Build Your Own Shake Up at RMS We received funding for Dietitians from St. Louis University to come and teach all 8 th grade students how to make healthy after school snacks emphasizing the importance of dairy. Back to Football Friday Being part of the Fuel Up to Play 60 team affords opportunities to network and keeps me in the loop.

Learning about this grant opportunity came from reading my dashboard and s. From Farm to School Farmer Rich & Farmer Paul Farmer Paul visited our 6 th graders to explain where foods come from. In the spring we were able to plant our own garden. Farmer Rich plowed our field and tilled the soil after the compost was delivered. 19
