New Healthy Eating and School Sport Policy

Alberta Schools Athletic Association and Ever Active Schools have initiated a policy change to help promote healthy eating at school sporting events at the provincial level: 

All food and beverages sold and provided at ASAA provincial championship events held in ASAA member school facilities must fit within the Choose Most Often and Choose Sometimes categories of the Alberta Nutritional Guidelines for Children and Youth.

We want to support school communities in making this change. Let us know how. Start the conversation on Twitter: #fuel4performance @ASAA and @EverActiveAB. Learn more about the project.
