Fact Sheet: Sweet Deals: School Fundraisers can be Healthy and Profitable

Food Environment Given rising obesity rates and children’s poor diets, it is important that all foods and beverages sold at and by schools make a positive contribution to children’s diets and health. As such, it has become no longer acceptable to sell junk food to children through school fundraisers. This fact sheet provides practical information to support health fundraising in schools to set a positive example and support healthy eating by children, nutrition education, and parents’ efforts to feed their children healthfully.
