Healthy Homes, Healthy Schools, Healthy Kids

Good health and nutrition begins at home -- and should continue at school. Student health requires the coopoerative effort of parents, teachers, food service staff, health and education groups, and the food and agricultural community.

A coordinated school health program (CSHP) model consists of eight interactive components. Schools by themselves cannot-and should not be expected to-solve the nation's most serious health and social problems. Families, health care workers, the media, religious organizations, community organizations that serve youth, and young people themselves also must be systematically involved. However, schools could provide a critical facility in which many agencies might work together to maintain the well-being of young people..
