Our Running Club practices twice a week and has a great interest in being healthy. Our Running Club members are scattered in different PE classes throughout the day. On their practice day, we deliver a "healthy snacks message" to everyone in the PE classes to benefit the large group as opposed to just the Club members. We show the classes their mileage success on the board in the gym as well as highlighting their healthy snack options after exercise. Most students in the classes take notice of the posters, the options and ask many questions of the club members - thus learning about nutrition from their peers.
