Action for Healthy Kids $2,500 Grant Helps Renovate Chesnut's Playground

afhk logoSeeing the Action for Healthy Kids® (AFHK) award as a natural fit to meet the objectives of both our Facilities Team's Playground Improvement Proposal and our Wellness Team's Increased Movement program, the two teams recently cooperated to win a $2,500 grant towards refurbishing Chesnut's back field play structures. For their support, Chesnut thanks AFHK, the nation’s leading nonprofit and largest volunteer network fighting childhood obesity and undernourishment by working with schools to improve nutrition and physical activity.

New Chesnut School Lunch Posters Explain Lunch Choices

2014-10 Lunchline PosterTo be sure that all Chesnut cafeteria customers understand what is included in school lunch, the Wellness Team's Nutrition group, including cafeteria staff and parents, recently posted a new infographic in the cafeteria: "Chesnut School Lunch Choices." 

In a Wellness presentation to students and teachers last month, we reviewed proper handwashing technique, healthy lunch choices, and the basics of filling your lunch tray, using the new poster as a guide. As there have been changes over the past few years about what is included in the price of school lunch, the children, as well as the adults, had many questions. For details, please visit the Meals & Menus page.
