Health topic based activities

 

With today’s kids spending an average of 30 hours per week at school, teachers and parents need to work together to establish healthy schools. Schools play a critical role in improving the dietary and physical activity behaviors of children and adolescents. Schools can create environments supportive of students’ efforts to eat healthy and be active by implementing policies and practices that support healthy eating and regular physical activity and by providing opportunities for students to learn about and practice these behaviors.

School staff, teachers, school nutrition workers and parents can help make schools healthier places to learn by providing quality food and teaching children about the importance of nutrition and embracing a healthy active lifestyle.

Here you can see how Smart Moves! promotes activities that challenge children to have a healthy lifestyle.
