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.
