Wisconsin 2023 Team Nutrition Training Grant

The focus of the 2023 Wisconsin Team Nutrition Training Grant is to facilitate the adoption of healthy eating patterns by school-aged children and their families through the coordination and implementation of MyPlate nutrition education connected to the nutritious meals and snacks offered through the USDA Child Nutrition Programs. In collaboration with Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program Education educators, MyPlate nutrition education will be provided to elementary, middle, and high school students. Classroom-based MyPlate education will be connected to school meals through the Wisconsin School Meals Rock! campaign to increase awareness about the nutritional quality of school meals. Additionally, statewide wellness efforts will be advanced by establishing a network of school districts to participate in a wellness collaborative as well as training and resources provided through a one-day school wellness summit.
