Healthy kids need healthy schools

. January 1, 2018.

Does your student get enough recess time at school? Are gym classes offered? What are the healthy options on the lunch menu? These are concerns many parents have about their children’s schools. While sometimes parents might like to work to make healthy changes, say longer recess times or healthier lunches, they might not know where to start. Now there’s a website that can help:

Created by Action for Healthy Kids and the National PTA, this new website empowers parents to make real changes at their child’s school. The website offers a way to swap information, and success stories, with parents from schools across the country, along with quizzes to test the health of your school and healthy ideas for fundraisers. It’s worth a look to begin making positive, healthy changes this year.
