Schools play a key role in the prevention of obesity. Supportive nutrition and physical activity policies and programs at school can improve the health of Alaska's kids. Beginning in the 2013-2014 school year, eight Alaska school district grantees are working to improve their school nutrition and physical activity environments by increasing opportunities for before, during and after school physical activity and improving the nutritional content of foods available for consumption at schools.
