The Alliance for a Healthier Generation enables stakeholders to assess and create an action plan in their schools that helps students to eat healthy and participate in regular physical activity. There is a wealth of information about snacks, wellness policies, physical activity, and breakfast and lunch programs. The site includes a calculator based on USDA standards that allows students to determine whether a product they may be eating is a snack or a healthy food item. After following the process and inputting data into the online forms, school leaders will have a plan in place to help students lead a healthy lifestyle.
