Add It Up: Healthy Eating + Physical Activity = A+

The Ecology Action Centre has joined the Nova Scotia Alliance for Healthy Eating and Physical Activity (NSAHEPA) in its school board election campaign to get healthy eating and physical activity on the radar as issues.

The NSAHEPA is asking school board members to support:
1. Quality Daily Physical Education (P-9)
2. Effective implementation of school food policy to increase accessibility of healthy foods in school
3. Improved school capacity to provide physical activity opportunities (e.g. through staff assignment, staff training, allocated time, partnerships with community organizations etc.)
4. Active Transportation to and from school, including school siting
