Health Services: Eat Smart
School Aged Children - Nutrition in Our Schools
Academic performance and quality of life issues are affected by the choices and availability of healthy foods in our schools.
- Only 2% of children (2 to 19 years) eat a healthy diet consistent with the five main recommendations from MyPlate
- Additionally, approximately 30.3 percent of children (ages 6 to 11) are overweight and 15.3 percent are obese.
- For adolescents (ages 12 to 19), 30.4 percent are overweight and 15.5 percent are obese.
- Obesity is common enough among children that it is now considered an epidemic.
