The Alabama State Board of Education passed sweeping changes directed at improving the health and well being of the students in our schools in an effort to stem the incidence of childhood obesity and obesity-related health problems.  These changes will impact all areas of school where food is sold, brought from home, or served during the school day. 

    The Baldwin County Board of Education developed a system-wide wellness policy to help comply with regulations.  Guidelines for parties/special snacks are at the discretion of the principal or that person’s designee.  Healthy snacks are encouraged and will be recommended.  With the principal or principal’s designee approval, special/celebratory snacks may be available for the student to have during break.  Students may bring money from home for special snack opportunities when made available.
