Wellness Policies

Local educational agencies (LEA) that participate in the National School Lunch Program (NSLP), and the School Breakfast Program (SBP), are required by federal law to establish a Local School Wellness Policy (LSWP) for all schools under its jurisdiction. LSWPs are an important tool for parents, LEAs, and school districts in promoting student wellness, preventing and reducing childhood obesity, and providing assurance that school meal nutrition guidelines meet the minimum federal school meal standards.


At minimum, schools must maintain a Wellness Policy that has the following elements: 

  • Measurable goals for nutrition promotion and education, physical activity, and other school-based activities that promote student wellness

  • Nutrition guidelines for all foods and beverages sold or made available on school campus during the school day

  • Policies for food and beverage marketing

  • Requirements that stakeholders be provided opportunities to participate in the development, implementation, and periodic review and update of the wellness policy

  • A plan for measuring effectiveness that is measured triennially and made available to the public

  • Annual notification informing and updating the public (parents, students, and others in the community) about the content and implementation of the LSWP

  • Designation of one or more LEA officials or school officials by position or title, to ensure that each school complies with the LSWP
