The HealthierUS School Challenge (HUSSC) recognizes schools involved in the National School Lunch Program, which has developed healthier schools by encouraging nutrition and physical activity.
The goal of the HealthierUS School Challenge is to improve the health of the Nation's children by promoting healthier school environments. To help meet the goal, the Food and Nutrition Service (FNS) identifies schools that have made changes to:
- improve the quality of the foods served,
- provide students with nutrition education, and
- provide students with physical education and opportunities for physical activity.
