Children and teens spend roughly half of their waking hours in school, so this setting is a key place to reinforce the importance of eating well and being active. This makes schools a vital partner to public health work.  Because children learn, eat and play at school during the years when they are acquiring lifestyle habits, an environment that supports healthy choices is critical to them becoming healthy, productive adults.
