Over a healthy breakfast (prepared by parent member and chef Hilda Cazares), we made some new strides:
- PUHS leaders presented members with key information about new wellness policies in Chicago schools, among them the new Snack and Beverage Policy.
- Healthy Schools Campaign Vice President of Urban Affairs Guillermo Gomez encouraged parents to take leadership at their schools by bringing together principals, wellness team champions and other parents to ensure that these new wellness policies are implemented successfully.
- We empowered parents to be reinforcers of new wellness policies, including advocacy for healthy school fundraisers, quality recess and physical activity programs, and healthier school meals.
We at Healthy Schools Campaign look forward to the great things that parent leaders will accomplish in 2013!
