Generating Rural Options for Weight (GROW) Healthy Kids and Communities was an integrated research, education, and Extension program to inspire communities, schools, and families to create environments that make it easy for children to eat healthfully and be physically active.
The School Physical Activity and Nutrition Environment Tool (SPAN-ET) was developed to assess school resources and readiness to improve nutrition and physical activity environments, suggest appropriate improvement strategies, and score impacts resulting from environmentally-based treatments.
The weekly Eat for Life classes, which began in March, have been taught in English by Katie Ahern, an Extension nutrition educator in Deschutes County, and in Spanish by Diana Cardenas, a nutrition educator in Linn County.
