    Texas Public School Nutrition Policy
     
    More than 30 percent of Texas children are considered overweight or obese, which is significantly higher than the nation as a whole. Our schools are in a powerful position to influence children, which is why we created the Texas Public School Nutrition Policy.   
     
    These nutrition guidelines are a result of a collaborative effort among parents, school administrators, health professionals and members of the food industry. Its purpose? To promote a healthier environment in Texas schools and help ensure a healthier future for Texas children.
