Healthy Weight Council Toolkits
The North Dakota Healthy Weight Council (HWC) believes that weight is only one aspect of health and well-being. Wellness includes health in body, mind and spirit, and all three are important to children’s success in school and in life.
The HWC “Weighing and Measuring Students in School Settings: A Position Paper” notes that promoting healthy lifestyles has the potential to benefit all students and staff, regardless of their weight status.
To help create environments that have the potential to improve the health of all who learn and work in schools, the HWC is pleased to provide these toolkits for schools, parents, students and the community.
