Lake Dallas ISD Wellness Policy

School Wellness Policy

Purpose and Goal

The link between nutrition and learning is well documented.  Healthy eating patterns are essential for students to achieve their full academic potential, full physical and mental growth, and lifelong health and well-being.  Healthy eating is demonstrably linked to reduced risk for mortality and development of many chronic diseases in adults.  Schools have a responsibility to help students and staff establish and maintain lifelong, healthy eating patterns.  Well-planned and well implemented school nutrition programs have been shown to positively influence students’ eating habits.

All students shall possess the knowledge and skills necessary to make nutritious and enjoyable food choices for a lifetime.  In addition, staff is encouraged to model healthy eating and physical activity as a valuable part of daily life.  The Lake Dallas Independent School District is committed to implement this comprehensive plan to encourage healthy eating and physical activity.  This plan shall make effective use of school and community resources and equitably serve the needs and interest of all students and staff, taking into consideration differences in cultural norms.
