Fuel Up with My Plate
Whittier School had a visit from Staley, the Chicago Bears mascot, to teach us about My Plate and to help us make healthy choices. We learned a lot to keep us healthy and had so much fun!

How did you accomplish your goals?

We learned about My Plate and how to make healthy choices, with grains, fruits, vegetable proteins, and dairy foods!

How did students and adults work together as a team?

Our Fuel Up to Play 60 Ambassadors led the school students in healthy choice chants and pledges to make health food plates at home.

What improvements have you seen at your school?

Students are talking about the visit and what they learned. We will be reinforcing this in February with our Healthy Families Night at the Field House in Waukegan.
