DASH programs allow parents to make more informed choices about their children’s after-school care. These programs serve healthy meals and drinks, require 30 minutes to an hour of daily exercise and limit the amount of time students spend on computer screens.

“These terrific after-school programs show students the many benefits of good nutrition and exercise and will help our students achieve success,” Torlakson said.
