Wellness workshops available at your school

Tuesday, September 22, 2015

It’s well known that healthy students have improved academics and school attendance.

And to that end, the Iowa Department of Education’s Team Nutrition has partnered with the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics Foundation to bring a two-hour workshop to elementary schools to promote school wellness through nutrition education and physical activity.

The workshops will include school wellness strategies and implementation resources.

The workshops can be held during a staff in-service day or they can be held during the school day while utilizing substitutes for lead teachers. Grants totaling $500 for substitutes are available.
