Healthy eating and physical activity solutions for kids

Recognize to Motivate Wellness Progress

There are many people volunteering much of their time to help make a healthy difference for kids. I know of teachers who give their own time to organize kids’ after school walking and running groups or spend extra minutes a week working a healthy eating lesson into the time that is available or finding ways to integrate it into their curriculum. Too often these great efforts go unrecognized. Giving recognition motivates these well doers and others to take similar actions.

Seek opportunities such as staff meetings to recognize wellness related actions! It will help build the “culture of wellness” that makes schools a healthy place. A place that helps kids reach their best well-being and academic potential.
