Wellness in the Schools
Wellness in the Schools (WITS) is a national non-profit that teaches kids healthy habits to learn and live better. We partner with public schools to provide nutrition and fitness education, healthy scratch-cooked meals, and active recess periods.Our approach improves student outcomes, and drives systemic, long-term change, shifting school cultures, and ultimately, fighting the childhood obesity epidemic.
WITS Labs are seasonal culinary and nutrition education classes for students, taught by a WITS Chef. Students prepare the simple, affordable, and healthy recipes that they will then experience at lunch. The sessions introduce students to the importance of healthy eating and seasonal ingredients, inspiring them to share their newly acquired knowledge with their families.
