Access to Healthy Foods

At Gloria Hicks Elementary, all students are provided with healthy breakfast choices every day in the classroom. Students are also provided with healthy food choices for lunch. Students may choose the main entree that comes with fruit, vegetables, and milk. Students may also choose yogurt, sandwiches, and salad instead of the main entree. In addition, the third, fourth and fifth grade students at Gloria Hicks Elementary have also learned about making healthy food choices and how to make healthy snacks. Speakers from the Texas A&M Ag Life spoke to the students about the importance and benefits of making healthy food choices for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Students were also taught how to make healthy snacks such as trail mixes and healthy smoothies.

How do you plan to make this Play last during the school year and beyond?

The Coaches will speak to and remind the students of the benefits of making healthy food choices every day. The Coaches will remind students that making healthy food choices daily will help their bodies become healthier, stronger and will give them more energy for the day. The Coaches will also remind the students that making healthy food choices needs to be done every day, not just during the school year, because making daily healthy food choices will benefit them every day of their life.
