The TriState Kid’s Nutrition Program started in 2019 when the team of Registered Dietitian Nutritionists at TriState Wellness decided to commit their time to improve the health and wellbeing of our children in the Lewis-Clark Valley. Over the past few years, 14 elementary schools, with over 3,700 students have received educational videos at home or in school covering lessons on basic food groups and healthy snack recipes.
