Welcome to SWITCH!

SWITCH ("School Wellness Integration Targeting Child Health") is an innovative school wellness initiative designed to support and enhance school wellness programming. Through SWITCH, schools can help student to "Switch what they Do, View, and Chew!"




SWITCH is managed by an interdisciplinary research team in partnership with the 4H youth development program through Iowa State University Extension and Outreach. Schools are provided with resources, training and support, but have autonomy to run programming in ways that best fit their unique needs and goals.
