Resources for parent councils

Make the healthy choice the easy choice! We need our schools to be spaces that foster good health and support healthy choices. One tool available to help shape the school environment is healthy public policy. As a leader on your school’s parent council you are in the position to positively influence the health of all students.

Healthy fundraising ideas
Help students model and practice what they learn in the classroom about healthy eating by ensuring that school fundraising activities are healthy.

Healthy student rewards
Rewards are commonly used to recognize students for classroom success. However, rewarding children with food, healthy or unhealthy, can lead to problems with children’s diets and health.

Healthy eating policy
Make the healthy choice the easy choice! The health unit has policy examples and tools available to support school boards and schools in creating spaced that foster healthy habits.
