Junk Food Free
After a two-year campaign led by students in the Nutrition Action Club, Codman Academy has adopted a policy to become a Junk Food Free campus. In our ten years of existence, the school has never served food or beverages high in sugar, fat or salt, but now the entire school is junk food free at all times.
If your school would like to learn more or start its own Nutrition Action Club, contact Wellness Director Lenward Gatison at firstname.lastname@example.org.
JUNK FOOD FREE POLICY
We are a Junk-Food Free campus!
This means healthy food only on campus (including before and after school) and during fieldwork. Staff who encounter students with junk food will confiscate the item and dispose of it. Repeated violations of the junk food free policy will result in further disciplinary action.
Junk food is any food or drink that is high in saturated fat, trans fat, sugar, salt, calories, and/or has little or no nutritional value.
