LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) - Schools in 17 states are in line for another financial boost to help kids shape up.
It comes in the form of a $20 million boost from a New Jersey philanthropic foundation for programs to promote healthy eating and exercise.
The Robert Wood Johnson Foundation initially funded the Healthy Schools program with an eight million dollar grant last year. It's making the additional funds available to the program's sponsor, the Alliance for a Healthier Generation.
Former President Bill Clinton and California Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger lead the alliance.
Schools in states with the highest obesity rates will receive the funds.
The states are: Alabama, Alaska, Arkansas, Georgia, Indiana, Kentucky, Louisiana, Michigan, Mississippi, Missouri, Nebraska, North Carolina, Oklahoma, South Carolina, Texas, Tennessee and West Virginia.
