HEALTHY KIDS, HEALTHY SCHOOLS

“How do we make the transition from feeding our children industrial food filled with artificial substances to freshly prepared, whole foods that are healthy for kids? At the Elsie Whitlow Stokes Community Freedom Public Charter School in Northeast, we think we’ve found the answer.”

  1. For many public school children around the country, meals received at school are often the only meals eaten during the day. School food service programs, like the one at E. W. Stokes School, help to ensure that these children have access to nutritious food that they also enjoy eating. In addition, schools like Stokes that have a holistic approach to student wellness: teach nutrition education; provide opportunities for physical activity; and serve good and fresh food, etc., help students develop good habits early in life that will help them avoid issues like obesity as they age.
