Wellness in the Schools

If you’re on this site, then you’re interested in kid’s health!

Nancy E. Easton, Co-Founder/Executive Director, Wellness in the Schools is coming to The Commonwealth Club in June to discuss healthy lunches, and much more, in our nation’s schools. If you’re an educator, parent, or anyone interested in our kid’s health, join me!

Wellness in the Schools inspires healthy eating, environmental awareness and fitness as a way of life for kids in public schools. Through meaningful public/private partnerships with school leadership, teachers, chefs, coaches, parents and kids, WITS develops and implements programs that provide healthy foods, healthy environments and opportunities for regular play to help kids learn and grow. Today WITS programs serve approximately 30,000 public school children across New York City, Kentucky, and Florida.

In an effort to combat childhood obesity and create healthier learning environments, Wellness in the Schools (WITS) developed Cook for Kids and Coach for Kids, hands-on food and fitness programs that are poised for replication nationwide. Cook for Kids has even received national accolades from First Lady Michelle Obama, and the WITS model served as inspiration for the Chefs Move to Schools Initiative.
