Governor Owens recently vetoed HB1056 which would have required that 50% of items offered in school vending machines meet acceptable nutritional standards. His decision is not the issue here, but it does open up discussion about children’s health. CoSPL has a number of titles on children’s health in Colorado:
How Healthy are Colorado Children?: Key Findings From the 2004 Colorado Child Health Survey, 2005
Colorado Connections for Healthy Schools: Making the Connection Between Health and Learning: a 2010 State Plan for Coordinated School Health, 2005
Colorado Early Childhood Hearing Screening Guidelines, 2001
Addressing the Crisis of Oral Health Access for Colorado’s Children, 2000
In addition, the following web sites offer more information on the topic:
