Kid Healthy Week annual observance
Every Kid Healthy Week is an annual observance created to celebrate school health and wellness achievements. This year the week is April 22nd - April 26th. this special week shines a spotlight on the great efforts schools are making to improve the health and wellness of their students and the link between nutrition, physical activity, and learning – because healthy kids are better prepared to learn!
Start off the week by encouraging physical activity! Get away from screens and plan activities outside such as an obstacle course or a scavenger hunt. Packing a picnic basket and spending the day at the pool is one of my favorite activities.
Every Kid Healthy week isn't just about physical activity. It's also about proper nutrition. Choose my plate is a great resource to learn about proper nutrition and portion sizes. For this week I challenge you to try some new healthy foods/snacks and to drink less sugary drinks.
