Dare to Make a Difference
The hard work of food service directors and their staff members is the secret ingredient in getting students to eat healthier—they are the true champions of Colorado kids! In Colorado, nearly a quarter of our children are overweight or obese. That’s why LiveWell Colorado partners with school districts to help kids fill their lunch trays with fresh veggies, low-salt sides and tasty dishes free of preservatives, dyes and chemicals. The success stories below represent the “drum beat” of a movement that is changing the way our children eat and, ultimately, live.
