A comprehensive approach to promoting student nutrition has taken hold at Virginia's Claremont Immersion Elementary School, which recently received state recognition for its efforts. Two teachers began the program in 2006 and transformed themselves into characters -- Dr. B and Dr. C -- who make regular visits to the school cafeteria to promote healthy lifestyle choices; the effort is part of their coursework to earn master's degrees. A nutritional council they helped form meets regularly to implement other healthy-school initiatives.
