Better Living: Exercise and Nutrition Daily, or BLEND, has received a grant from the Medica Foundation for $25,000 to expand programming at Lincoln Elementary School. The grant has been awarded to help BLEND continue the Wise Kids program.

The Wise Kids program was coordinated by BLEND whose goal is to improve the health of area children by addressing the problem of childhood obesity. The program incorporates workbooks, games and activities designed to get kids moving and to make healthy choices. Each student completed an online survey before starting and after completing the program. Post survey results were encouraging indicating that the program was beneficial to students.

The Wise Kids program was created by the Sajai Foundation in partnership with the National Recreation and Park Association.
