HealthierUS School Challenge
Obesity is a growing concern for school children in the United States. The United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) believes that schools should be taking a leadership role in helping students learn to make healthy eating and active lifestyle choices.

HealthierUS Schools
HealthierUS Schools could be certified as either Bronze, Silver, Gold or Gold with Distinction schools, according to standards established by FNS. The objective was to recognize schools that took specific steps to improve their programs and address obesity and to encourage other schools to follow their lead.
