Washington is the first state in the country to establish a comprehensive food service policy. On October 30, 2013, Governor Inslee issued Executive Order 13-06, which requires all executive agencies to adopt the Washington State Healthy Nutrition Guidelines. Each state agency must fully implement the Guidelines by the end of 2016.

The webinar presenters will describe the journey from policy idea to executive order, including the roles played and actions taken by advocates, legislators, the department of health, and governor. The health department will describe the consensus building that took place within state government, how the nutrition standards were developed, and plans for implementation.
