MILWAUKEE (AP) - Seven Wisconsin school districts have been awarded a total of $3.2 million in federal grants to help them expand their nutrition and physical-education programs.

To qualify, the districts have to implement programs that teach students healthy eating habits and good nutrition. They also have to make sure kids have access to certain physical fitness activities, which could include fitness assessments or developing certain team skills.

The largest grant is going to the West Allis-West Milwaukee School District, which will receive about $850,000. The Mukwonago Area School District and Pittsville School District will each get about $445,000.

The other districts are:

- Riverdale School District in Muscoda: $390,000

- Unity School District in Balsam Lake: $375,000

- Highland School District in Highland: $360,000

- Lake Geneva Elementary School District in Lake Geneva: $280,000
