The policy assessment tool

An introduction

This assessment tool can help you keep track of your program’s policies for nutrition, physical activity, and screen time (time allotted to TV, movies, computers, and video games).

You can use this tool for two purposes:

First, the tool can help you identify which policies you already have that meet your goals, as well as additional policies you may want to write.

Second, the tool can you help you see where your policies are and may help point out where a more formal policy might be needed.

Continue to the next section, “Gathering Documents,” to take the first step toward assessing and improving your policies.
