What people are saying

"Our kids have really been conscious about their healthy habits.  A group of students is even putting together a Fit Club. 

It has been easier to initiate snack improvements and our staff has been more conscious of what we are serving at special events and cooking projects. 

All in all, CATCH Healthy Habits has increased the awareness and healthy habits of our students, staff and families.  Thank you very much for this opportunity!"

- Karen Berry, Tucson Unified School District
