Healthy eating and physical activity solutions for kids

HKC On the Road: Gadsden, AL

How do you form a unified front to make school a healthier place? Put P.E. Teachers and Child Nutrition Services Managers together at a Balance My Day Training, of course!

  • Child Nutrition Services Managers went to work first by suggesting fun physical activities students could do to learn nutrition concepts.
  • P.E. teachers joined in to brainstorm about ways the cafeteria could be used as a learning laboratory for making healthy choices.
  • P.E. teachers designed a number of ready-to-implement fun movement activities that also teach nutrition.
  • Cafeteria managers finished the training with ways to make the lunch room THE place to eat and to get and stay fit.
