EVERY KID HEALTHY WEEK
Every Kid Healthy™ Week is observed the last week of April every year. It’s created to celebrate school health and wellness achievements. The week spotlights efforts schools make to improve the health and wellness of their students and the link between nutrition, physical activity, and learning. Healthy kids are better prepared to learn.
HOW TO OBSERVE
Do a healthy food taste-test with kids to find foods they like that are also healthy. Take your kids on a smell safari at a produce store to see what healthy foods they can identify by smell. For younger kids, use grapes, blueberries, or a fruit/veggie of your choice to help your child count their way through homework.
