  • Who is it for?

    Any organization wanting to create more opportunities for healthy eating and physical activity.

  • How do you get it?

    This resource is distributed electronically and can be downloaded on this page.

  • How is it used?

    Organizations can use the sample as a template to create their own healthy eating and physical activity policy.

A policy establishing an organization’s support for physical activity and healthy eating is one of the simple organizational policy changes that can be made to help us all eat smart and move more.

The NC Division of Public Health’s landmark Physical Activity and Healthy Eating Proclamation states that meetings will include physical activity breaks as well as healthy foods and beverages, and participation in Division worksite wellness activities and facilities on the main campus will be supported by Division management.
