Go, Slow, Whoa Expands at APS

Go, Slow, WhoaA healthy eating initiative known as “Go, Slow, Whoa” is expanding in APS. Through the use of colored symbols, students learn how to make healthy choices at the cafeteria. “Go” foods are identified by a green symbol and are beneficial to eat almost anytime. “Slow” foods are identified by a yellow symbol and should be eaten in moderation. “Whoa” foods are identified by a red symbol and should only be eaten on rare occasions.

Participating schools for the 2010-11 year include:

  • Boston K-8
  • Clyde Miller K-8
  • Laredo Elementary
  • Montview Elementary
  • Paris Elementary
  • Park Lane Elementary
  • Side Creek Elementary
  • Tollgate Elementary

APS is partnering with LiveWell Colorado, 7NEWS and the U.S. Department of Agriculture for the program. “Go, Slow, Whoa” will expand to more APS schools over the next few years.
