Healthy eating and physical activity solutions for kids

Make it Personal

Commitment is an ingredient in the recipe for success. When school wellness team members have a personal interest in wellness, they are much more likely to promote healthy behaviors and participate in creating healthier environments.

School wellness team members have the power to change misconceptions about what a healthy eating means. For too long, many have viewed good nutrition as a “diet” when in fact all foods can fit with balance. Team members become role models and ambassadors for healthy change. MyPlateLet’s MoveUSDA Team Nutrition and Healthy Kids Challenge Balance My Day Curriculum are resources that demonstrate how “all foods can fit” with moderation, variety and healthy balance.
