PUB-020: Fitness and Nutrition

Fitness and Nutrition: The Wisconsin Medical Society supports additional public health and legislative intervention to improve fitness and decrease obesity.

The Society strongly advises that all school districts in Wisconsin have daily physical education programs in all grades and a minimum level of dietary standards in school food that emphasize appropriate portion size and healthier nutritional choices over popular food items. (HOD, 0412)
