BeHealthy School Kids Program is a nutrition education program targeting Pre K through 5th grade students at 17 Winston-Salem/Forsyth County Elementary Schools. The schools served have at least 70% or more of the student population eligible for free or reduced meals. At each school, we strive to reach students, staff, faculty, and parents through bulletin boards, morning announcements, bi-monthly newsletters, class presentations, PTA workshops, and/or special events. A Public Health Educator collaborates with principals, teachers, students, and parents to support healthier lifestyle choices through individual change and environmental policies such as:
*creating and distributing healthier snack option list for parents
*supporting healthier options for school functions (parties, fundraisers, etc.)
*removing or reducing access for students, teachers, and staff to sugary drinks
*increasing community access to trails, tracks, etc. on school grounds to increase physical activity
