The Anoka-Hennepin Health and Wellness Policy was first adopted by the School Board in August 2006 to comply with the Child Nutrition and WIC Reauthorization Act of 2004.
The policy was revised by the board in February 2010 to include more healthy changes, including encouraging healthy options in classroom treats and rewards and stipulating what kinds of beverages and snacks can be sold in school vending machines.

The district's Health, Wellness and Safety Committee meets monthly to discuss and review related issues and periodically recommends changes to the School Board and district administration.
