Fueling Up In and Out of School
- Chris Comsudi, Linder Elementary School
- Access to Healthy Foods, Community Involvement, Teamwork
Here at Linder Elementary, we strive to make sure that our students are getting the proper nutrition to fuel their bodies throughout the school day, as well as at home. From our Breakfast in the Classroom program to Brighter Bites, students receive healthy foods, dairy products, nutrition education and fresh food to take home. Students start each day with a healthy breakfast in their classroom, including a cold milk beverage to help them fuel up for their day. Many families also participate in a program called Brighter Bites, where they receive farm fresh foods for volunteering to package and distribute these goods. Each family that volunteers gets to take home 2 pounds of fresh fruits and vegetables, along with recipes to use each of the items. Our school and health team not only make sure students are fueling up throughout each day, but they are also encouraging brain breaks in class, and all students are participating in Marathon Kids.
