HEALTHY FUND-RAISING 

Alternatives to Selling Candy for Schools, Sports and Clubs 

Candy, baked efforts, soda and other foods with little nutritional value are commonly used for fund-raising. This sends the message to students that the School District views money as being more important than their students' health. It compromises classroom learning by sending contradictory nutrition messages taught in the classroom. It contributes to poor health by adding unnecessary calories and encourages students to consume less nutrient dense foods over to healthier choices. Increasing obesity rates among children are resulting in serious health consequences, such as increased incidence of heart disease, Type 2 diabetes, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, sleep apnea, low self-esteem, poor body image and isolation. 

Adopting a policy of healthy fund-raising result in: 

● Healthier kids who learn better as research demonstrates that good nutrition is linked to better behavior and academic performance. 

● Delivery of consistent health messages because fund-raising with healthy foods and non-food items demonstrates a school commitment to promoting healthy behaviors and supports lessons learned in the classroom rather than contradicts them. 

● Promoting a healthy school environment by providing students with reliable health information and the opportunity to practice it.
