CHICAGO (FOX 32 News) -

The Chicago Public School district has received almost $4.5 million in federal funds to make students healthier.

The money will go toward the "Healthy CPS" program.

The program includes healthy snacks and drinks, a health and physical education curriculum, and education about the dangers of smoking.

They'll be planting a garden at South Loop Elementary School.

The grants are part of a national fitness initiative that includes First Lady Michelle Obama's "Let's Move" campaign.
