Healthier US School Challenge – Smarter Lunchroom

Healthier US School Challenge Smarter Lunch Room

The HealthierUS School Challenge: Smarter Lunchrooms (HUSSC: SL) is a voluntary certification initiative recognizing those schools enrolled in Team Nutrition that have created healthier school environments  through promotion of nutrition and physical activity.
In 2010, First Lady Michelle Obama introduced Let’s Move!, incorporating HUSSC: SL into her campaign to raise a healthier generation of kids. At that time, monetary incentive awards became available for each HUSSC:SL award level: Bronze, Silver, Gold, and Gold Award of Distinction.
To date, HUSSC: SL awards have been given to schools in 50 states and the District of Columbia. As of May 19, 2015, there are 7,018 schools certified (4,743 Bronze, 1,314 Silver, 596 Gold, and 365 Gold Awards of Distinction).  Click here to view Nebraska HUSSC winners.
