TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) - Kansas is receiving nearly $350,000 in federal grants to help schools serve healthier meals and snacks.

The Kansas Department of Education says it will use the money from the U.S. Department of Agriculture to provide training. The state also will take steps to increase participation in the school breakfast program and use gardening as a way to entice students to eat different fruits and vegetables.

Schools also will be able to apply for money to offer staff wellness programs and cooking/tasting activities in the classroom.
