Wellness Policy Assessment


Child Nutrition Program

The Child Nutrition program is reviewed yearly to verify that all foods sold to students meet all the USDA requirements.  All Smart Snacks are verified for compliance through use of the Smart Snacks calculator.

School-based Programs

Individual schools choose to implement food sales for fund-raising purposes.  These programs have been checked annually by Child Nutrition staff to verify compliance with Smart Snacks rules. 

Physical fitness

Opportunities for fitness activity beyond PE include recess time, classroom movement activities, passing periods, and unstructured play.


Nutrition education is part of the curriculum for the Arlington Public Schools in specified programs including Health, PE, and Culinary Arts.
