Motivate Champions for Healthy Kids
August 1, 2016
Build support for wellness among school administrators, teachers, nurses, nutrition services staff, families, kids, and community partners! The connection between the increased availability of healthier food choices and physical activity to enhance academic achievement has been demonstrated.
Create excitement to take action by demonstrating strategies that help supporters learn by hearing, seeing, and doing. Take opportunities to serve up healthy snacks with a few learning tips; no one will suspect they just received a mini nutrition education lesson. Plan activities that help people move and find how fun physical activity can be. We call this “Active Play”! Follow the August Healthy Kids Challenge WOWS Newsletters for healthy snacks; plus, learn ideas and other actions to motivate activity that leads to enhanced health and academic achievement.
