Summer Tips for Healthy Choices

17 May

I was thrilled to learned that students and teachers at the high school my two boys attend, will be planting a large vegetable garden on school grounds. The vegetables grown in this garden will be used in the cafeteria for student consumption. LOVE this concept! Students of all ages are adopting healthier lifestyles. Elementary schools across the nation are embracing this “healthy choice” concept, check out one particular elementary school’s success story!

First Lady Michelle Obama is making huge efforts to create healthier lifestyles with her campaign “Let’s Move“. One of the major goals is to create healthier school environments through promotion of nutrition and physical activity. Principals and teachers can get involved in her quest to raise a healthier generation of kids by joining the HealthierUS School Challenge.

Regular exercise in nature is proven to improve children’s physical and mental health. Outdoor activity helps kids maintain a healthy weight, boosts their immunity and bone health and lowers stress. Kids need at least 60 minutes of active and vigorous play each day to stay healthy, and one of the easiest and most enjoyable ways to meet this goal is by playing outside.

FREE Download: Help your students begin a healthy active summer with this “Weekly Exercise Chart“. From now until the end of the school year, give your students this weekly exercise chart, each week award the students that exercised, and completed the chart with the “Weekly Exercise Certificate“!
