Families from all over the community came to celebrate their children’s imagining of a healthier world and of a healthier Alachua County! Entries showcased the wonderful creativity and talent from three participating schools: Idylwild Elementary, Kimball Wiles Elementary, and the Healthy Learning Academy.
The 2016 theme, “Picture This: Imagining a Healthier World,” aimed to encourage K-5 children to show what a healthier world means to them!
Parents and children enjoyed arts and crafts, creative dancing from the UF Center for Arts in Medicine and certificates of participation! Lakeisha Hood, the newly-appointed Director for the Division of Food, Nutrition and Wellness in the Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services, was the event’s special guest. She oversees statewide school lunch programs and also promotes nutrition.
