Wellness in the Schools

Cook for Kids 

In partnership with local Departments of Education, WITS operates the Cook for Kids program 

in public school cafeterias and classrooms to promote healthy eating and combat childhood 

obesity. WITS chefs teach children and their families how to cook healthy, delicious, and 

affordable recipes featuring whole, unprocessed foods through our WITS Labs and WITS BITS, 

series of seasonal cooking and nutrition classes. 

 

 

Coach for Kids 

WITS Coach for Kids program brings trained coaches onto public school recess yards to 

encourage even the least active children to engage in fun and healthy physical activities. Coach 

for Kids actively combats schoolyard bullying by building positive social skills through play and 

fosters a sense of excitement around fitness. 

 

Green for Kids 

WITS Green for Kids combines edible gardening with environmental education in a way that is  

interactive and accessible for all students and schools. Utilizing mobile, hydroponic “Tower 

Gardens” as our vehicle, WITS brings the school garden experience into classrooms and 

cafeterias for hands-on learning.
