Provide brief bouts of physical activity before, during, or after sedentary classroom periods. When possible, have movement integrated into the academic content. Provide at least one daily period of recess for a minimum of 20 minutes (not to replace the PE requirement, but an additional activity period of free play); Provide all students with opportunities to participate in intramural activities, including those with particular physical activity needs and who are at high-risk for sedentary lifestyle; Establish a Safe Routes to School program; and Ensure that physical activity cannot be taken away from students nor can excessive exercise be used as a form of punishment.

Establish standards for fundraising that do not include food or limit foods sold for fundraising to those meeting nutrient and portion size standards established for the school;Prohibit the use of foods and beverages as reward or punishment;Limit the frequency of classroom celebrations that include food, and provide recommendations for non-food celebrations and healthy classroom celebrations consistent with established nutrition standards; andRequire that all students have at least 10 minutes to eat after sitting down for breakfast and 20 minutes after sitting down for lunch.
