At home you do what you can to make sure your kids eat healthier and stay active. But since they spend so much of their day in school, your influence is needed there, too.
As almost any teacher will tell you, healthy foods and regular physical activity can make a positive difference in the classroom. They may help kids:
- Concentrate better
- Perform at their best
- Have better attendance
Volunteer for a project or join a parent’s committee!
Lead by Example!
Be their role model for healthy foods and physical activity at home and school.
Make Fundraisers Healthier!
Instead of the usual candy and dessert foods, how about selling fresh fruit or holding a car wash or walkathon? Healthier choices can work just as well and are better for everybody.
