Snack Smarter in Ward Elementary School
- Luke Collins, Bernard J Ward Elementary School
- Access to Healthy Foods
Each year, we host a Family Fitness Night to which students can bring their families to enjoy fun fitness activities. This year, we decided to incorporate information about eating healthy. We had two booths set up with information on healthy food options. One booth was set up by the Will County Health Department titled "Rethink Your Drink." This booth was set up to illustrate how much sugar goes into various beverages. We also had a booth set up by the park district providing information about the nutrition in our food. Each booth had flyers for families to take home.
