Heart Healthy Schools

Heart Healthy Schools is an initiative of the Heart and Stroke Foundation of New Brunswick aimed at improving the school environment to support healthy lifestyle choices, for children and youth.

Health behaviours, such as making healthy food choices and being physically active, are sensitive to environmental influences.

Heart Healthy Schools is a program that provides support to school administrators in the promotion of a healthy environment, among the members of the school community.

The school environment, both the physical and social environment, can play a significant role in supporting health behaviours in children. The environment defines culture. What is most popular among the members of a particular community can affect potential health behaviours and health outcomes. A school culture that supports the healthy choice as the easiest and most popular choice will benefit from student engagement in healthy lifestyle choices and behaviours.
