BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) - Fifteen Louisiana schools will receive grants to help them promote healthy eating and physical activity.
  
Louisiana's education and health departments announced Thursday that federally-funded grants of $5,000 are available to applicants that meet a list of criteria aimed at supporting healthier school environments.
  
The schools will need to agree to incorporate nutrition education into classrooms and to promote health messaging. To be eligible, schools must participate in certain federally-financed school meal programs.
  
Schools that receive the grants will get training on how to create smarter, healthier lunchrooms.
  
The grant application and more information are available online at www.louisianafitkids.com. The submission deadline is January 31, 2018.
