SWITCH ("School Wellness Integration Targeting Child Health") is an innovative school wellness initiative designed to support and enhance school wellness programming. Through SWITCH, schools can help student to "Switch what they Do, View, and Chew!" in the academic classroom, in Physical Education and at the lunchroom.

The Social-Emotional learning pathway with SWITCH
Research activities related to the feasibility, effectiveness and scale-up of the SWITCH program with the results being published in peer-reviewed journals.
