Target demographics: School age children across the country

Direct beneficiaries per year: 10 million children served through the Healthy Schools Program; 30 million children will have access to healthier school meals through the School Meals Initiative; 2.45 million children served by the Healthcare Initiative; and approximately 3,600 children are participating in the Healthy Out-of-School Time (HOST) pilot initiative

Geographic areas served: All 50 states in the U.S.

Programs: The Healthy Schools Program (HSP) model is based on the set of theoretical principles that comprise the social ecological approach with the intention to positively impact the dynamic interactions between individuals, systems and environmental change necessary to create a school environment in which physical activity and healthy eating opportunities are available and promoted before, during and after school. To that end, the Healthy School Program aims to have 80% of all participating schools demonstrate progress toward improving health policies or systems.

By following the Alliance’s Healthy Out-of-School Time Framework organizations will be able to:

- improve access to healthier foods

- increase physical activity opportunities

- engage in positive youth development

The goals of the Industry Initiatives are to increase the signatories for all agreements, such that healthy food and beverages, access to healthcare and physical activity are provided to all children across the country. In addition, the Industry Imitative strives to ensure that all agreements are being utilized to their fullest potential by doctors, dietitians, healthcare providers and schools.
