Healthy School Environments

The DINE Healthy School Environments Nutritionist collaborates with schools to facilitate policy, system, and environmental (PSE) changes related to nutrition and physical activity. The goal of these PSE changes is to make healthier choices easier for students and the rest of the school community. The nutritionist works with each participating school's administration and staff (including teachers, the school wellness committee and the cafeteria staff) to determine the school's needs and priorities. Services may include:

  • Trainings for teachers and cafeteria staff
  • Assistance strengthening existing nutrition/physical activity initiatives
  • Information and programming for parents
  • Nutrition and physical activity messaging materials for hallways, cafeterias, and classrooms
  • School meal promotion
