Child Nutrition

Washington Winners!
HealthierUS School Challenge

The HealthierUS School Challenge (HUSSC) recently awarded 21 schools in Washington state an incentive award of either $500 or $1,000 each. Schools receiving a HUSSC award commit to meeting the criteria throughout their four-year certification period.

OSPI Child Nutrition applauds the winners! Their efforts have created healthier school environments through providing healthy meals and promotion of nutrition education and physical activity.

To qualify for an award, each school submitted a formal application and had to meet three criteria (listed below) set by the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food and Nutrition Service. The challenge is a voluntary national certification initiative for schools participating in the National School Lunch Program. Among other functions, it supports First Lady Michelle Obama’s Let’s Move! Campaign by helping schools raise healthy children. The awards are based on how the schools:

  1. Improve the nutritional quality of the foods served.
  2. Provide students with nutrition education.
  3. Provide students with physical education and opportunities for physical activity.

And now, the winners:
