Registered Dietician Speaks to Students
- kami Lund, Thomas Jefferson High School
- Community Involvement
We had a Registered Dietician come and speak to our high school Personal Fitness classes about how overall wellness affects brain function, how portions have increased the past 20 years, along with the increase in obesity. Students participated in a hands-on demonstration of portioning cereal into a variety of bowl sizes and evaluated how the bowl size affected the portion size. They also learned just how much sugar has been added to everyday foods and beverages. The main emphasis was on choosing nutrient-dense foods and keeping active every day.
