Local Wellness Policy

North Carolina Action for Healthy Kids

Action for Healthy Kids (AFHK) is a nationwide initiative dedicated to improving the health and educational performance of children through better nutrition and physical activity in schools. Healthy schools produce healthy students - and healthy students are better able to learn and achieve their true potential. North Carolina AFHK is one of 51 Action for Healthy Kids state teams. The mission of North Carolina Action for Healthy Kids is to improve children's nutrition and physical activity in schools by collaborating with diverse stakeholders in advocating, promoting and implementing national and state initiatives. N.C. Action for Healthy Kids' primary work focuses on implementing Local Wellness Policies in North Carolina schools through the implementation of the Successful Students Eat Smart and Move More campaign.

Successful Students Eat Smart and Move More

Successful Students Eat Smart, Move More is a social marketing intervention designed to create a “buzz” around Local Wellness Policy among school board members, superintendents, School Health Advisory Council (SHAC) chairs and PTA members so that policies will be implemented, evaluated and supported by the larger community.
