After-school snacks get the healthy treatment in Ky.

CATCH after school snack program features education and healthy options.

April 1—Healthy vegetables and fruit offerings are everywhere these days at local schools‚ in morning snacks at elementary schools, in lunch menus and now they’re spreading to the after-school time slot in some Lexington (Neb.) Public Schools.

CATCH, an eight-week healthy eating program provides lesson plans about healthy food options and fun snacking options.

CATCH stands for: Coordinated Approach To Child Health and is funded through a Minority and Health Disparities Grant covering six counties, said CFI Program Coordinator Tiffany Carlson, who has helped implement the CATCH program.
