Energy Balance 4 Kids RD Nutrition Coaches Move Forward in Iowa

The Iowa Department of Education, along with the Iowa Energy Balance 4 Kids RD Coaches, received a "Team Nutrition Grant to Improve the Health and Future of America's Children" from the U.S. Department of Agriculture. This unique partnership between the Iowa Department of Education and the Iowa Energy Balance 4 Kids RD Coaches gives Iowa registered dietitians opportunities to be more involved in nutrition, wellness and fitness in local schools.

EB4K coaches will assist 40 schools in making great strides to meet HealthierUS Schools Challenge criteria through the development of a school based Energy Balance team at each school. Led by the RD Coach, teams will determine school and district needs and implement strategies to create the healthiest environment possible. Coaches will review menus, provide nutrition and activity tips, assist with wellness policy revisions and provide assistance in completing the HUSSC application.

The $6.4 million in funding supports elementary and secondary schools applying for the HealthierUS School Challenge, a key component of First Lady Michelle Obama's Let's Move! initiative to end childhood obesity within a generation. Iowa is one of 31 states receiving this grant and will be implemented during the two school semesters in 2012.
