Storey Elementary's new Nutrition Corner emphasizes physical activity just in time for those New Year's Resolutions! The Nutrition Corner is featured in the staff lounge, reminding teachers that physical activity is important for their students and themselves.
Getting enough exercise can seem daunting, but it is possible. Try breaking up the time throughout the day, such as walking around the office during your breaks and playing outside with your kids after work. Whether it's playing sports, running around the block with a friend, or walking the dog, find a way to do some physical activity today! Remember - adults need 2 and a half hours of moderate intensity physical activity every week and children need 1 hour per day! How will you (and your kiddos!) meet those recommendations in 2017?
Nutrition Corners are a great way to reinforce nutrition education at your school. If you're interested in adding one to your classroom, contact your nutrition educator.
