The Santa Clara County Office of Education (SCCOE) in cooperation with The Health Trust and Healthy Silicon Valley has created a new program called Fit for Learning. During 2005-2006, the program will focus on 5th grade students in Santa Clara County. The primary objective for Fit for Learning is addressing the increased rate in childhood obesity.

Jennifer Morris, PhD, at Stanford Prevention Research Center, wrote the Fit for Learning Resource Guide to provide teachers with ideas for getting their students involved in learning about nutrition and physical fitness. The Fit for Learning Resource Guide is divided into monthly themes tied to a nutrition or physical activity objective. See a sample of this month's theme, "Inside Out."
