Building Healthy Students In Your School

Join Rise & Shine Illinois and Action for Healthy Kids Tuesday, April 24, 9:00 a.m. at the Regional Office of Education in Loves Park for a health and wellness training that will include a discussion on Breakfast After the Bell and Game On. 

Breakfast After the Bell: Starting in the 2017-2018 school year, Illinois schools with 70% or more of the student population eligible for free or reduced–price meals will begin offering Breakfast After the Bell – which means serving breakfast as part of the school day.

Game On: Creates healthier environments for students, staff, and the communities they serve.

The training offers information on:

  • Increasing your school’s breakfast participation through Breakfast After the Bell delivery models and the benefits of school breakfastHeal;thy
  • Working collaboratively to improve school policy and practices related to students eating better and engaging in more physical activity
  • Financial support and resources for your school

The training is free. Superintendents, principals, teachers, administration staff, food service professionals, and community members are encouraged to attend. Participants will receive 3 Professional Development Credits (PDCs).
