Wellness in the Schools  Wellness in the Schools (WITS) is a national nonprofit that teaches kids healthy habits to learn & live better. #feedkidsrealfood

We had a weekend filled with fun, activism, and healthy drink choices!
A few of our WITS team members joined families of CS55X: The Benjamin Franklin School as they asked for peace in the community.
WITS Bronx Chef Kent and Chef/RDN @kitchendietitian provided Power Water and a variety of health information for the community. Power Water is water infused with refreshing fruit to provide hydration without the added sugars!

Thank you to Montefiore CHO Ericka for joining us, and to Principal Torres for welcoming us!

Would you like to cook with @billtelepan? Join the WITS Associate Council on September 24th!

“We are a human service organization. At the end of the day we want to make sure we take care of ourselves so we can best serve our kids. We’ve all got mentors so we can support one another.” - Program Manager @erroljones39
Day 2 of WITS National training was amazing!! WITS Coach for Kids Ambassador @jennawolfe motivated (and wowed) us ALL by telling her story about her personal and professional career path. She’s an amazing example of a woman who has set her mind on something and achieved it!

You have to think like a kid to teach kids!

It’s Day 1 of Wellness in the Schools’ National Program Training, and our 👩🏽‍🍳Chefs & 🏃🏾‍♂️Coaches from New York, New Jersey, Florida, California, and D.C. are here in NYC getting ready for another amazing year.
Chefs Giselle & Evie led WITS Bit Family Feud training and Coaches Jason & Mikal led a FIT Bit workshop!

Another successful Shadow Day with @dallascowboys coach @jasongarrettoficial to support health and wellness in public schools across the country. Thank you for your continued support @jasongarrettoficial and good luck on the season ahead. #feedkidsrealfood #letkidsplay

McNicol Middle School principal Melissa Gurreonero says, “I am in love with the passion WITS Chef Leonor has taken into the school and how much of an inspiration she is being for the kids.” From bringing @chefmschwartz's kale pizza to the menu, to students making their own pesto with herbs from the four tower gardens, McNicol's culture of wellness is thriving.

A huge congrats to our leaders, the dynamic duo of @nancy.easton and @billtelepan for completing the West Point Triathlon this weekend. Nancy placed first in her age group and 4th overall for women. How's that for some #mondaymotivation?

Exercising is even more fun with a buddy, so our NYC and Florida offices did a joint WITS Fit Bit...by video conference! Thanks @erroljones39 for leading.
