Live Healthy Kids is a nutrition, cooking, and physical wellness curriculum offered in elementary schools throughout Athens County. This Live Healthy Appalachia program aims to show children how to make delicious and healthy food through a multi-sensory, hands-on experience. In this classroom-based curriculum, children, their teachers, Live Healthy Kids Food Educators and volunteers are learning together about ways to live a healthier, more active life in Appalachia.
