The Child Health Advisory Committee (CHAC), established by Act 1220, includes an ACHI representative. ACHI’s Health Policy Board endorsed CHAC recommendations to the Arkansas Board of Education for nutrition and physical activity in public schools. The Rules Governing Nutrition and Physical Activity in Arkansas Public Schools, adopted by the Board of Education in 2005, limited access to unhealthy foods and mandated at least 150 minutes of physical activity each week for students. Legislation was enacted in 2007 to increase academic instruction time and limit physical education requirements for public school students.
