CATCH stands for Coordinated Approch to Child Health.  Through grant funding from the Iowa Department of Public Health the program has been implemented in the Central Lee and Keokuk elementary schools.  The program focuses on nutrition and physical activity in four areas:

1.  the Classroom
2.  P.E. classes
3.  Cafeteria
4.  at Home

CATCH characters Hearty Heart, Dynamite Diet, Flash Fitness, and Salt Sleuth teach students about continuous activity, and the differences between "Go, Slow, Whoa" foods.  For more information on CATCH click here.



Holy Trinity Catholic Elementary and Ft. Madison Lincoln Elementary will begin the CATCH program in the 2012-2013 school year.  For information on the program in those schools please contact a member of their CATCH team.
