This year the Culture of Wellness in Preschools Program (COWP) in partnership with the Integrated Nutrition Education Program (INEP) is bringing to your school a nutrition and physical activity text-messaging program, called Text2LiveHealthy (T2LH). The goal of T2LH is to provide parents of preschool and elementary school aged children, teachers, and staff with resources and helpful tips to keep their families engaged in a healthy lifestyle. The program is aligned with COWP and INEP direct education-school based programming and it is provided at no cost to the participants.
Families who sign up for T2LH will receive 2-3 text messages every week with creative recipes, tips to eat more fruits and vegetables, ideas to stay physically active as a family, and information about health events happening close to their preschool/school.
