West Chicago General Mills council supports nonprofit's health education resources

WEST CHICAGO – Nutrition education resources are now available to local schools and community members from an area nonprofit, thanks in part to support from General Mills Community Action Council of West Chicago.

Health World, a St. Charles-based nonprofit dedicated to promoting health education and providing children with the information they need to build healthy lives, will provide access to these resources to help empower young people and reduce obesity statistics.

The organization recently announced the availability of these resources for the community in a news release.

Health World offers the basics of nutrition education using an eLearning platform that integrates lesson plans into classrooms and provides young people with a healthy lifestyle plan, according to the release.

Students who are part of the nonprofit’s programs focus on increasing their healthy food intake and habits, learning how to read and understand food labels and decreasing high-fat, high-sugar and high-caloric foods.

“General Mills holds nutrition education in the forefront by mobilizing essential programs that help educate children about nutrition and healthy choices,” said Emily Meyer, chairwoman of General Mills Community Action Council of West Chicago, in the release.

“The council is focused on providing resources that will have a positive impact in the health and well-being of children and their families.”
