Welcome to the WellSAT 2.0

In passing the Child Nutrition and WIC (Women, Infants and Children program) Reauthorization Act of 2004, Congress mandated that all school districts participating in federal school meal programs create and implement school wellness policies by July 2006. In 2010, the Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act strengthened local wellness policy requirements and added requirements for public participation, transparency and implementation. These policies must address nutrition education, nutrition standards for foods sold, and physical activity, and must include measures for evaluating the policy’s effectiveness. By completing the updated Wellness School Assessment Tool, WellSAT 2.0 users will be able to assess the quality of their school district’s wellness policy*, and will be provided with personalized guidance and resources for making improvements, based on the assessment.

*WellSAT 2.0 measures the quality of written policies. A printable copy of the WellSAT 2.0 is available here. For information on how to assess wellness policy implementation, email marlene.schwartz@uconn.edu.

Support for this project was provided by grants from the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation and Rudd Foundation.
