Ayer Elementary's cafeteria received a Nutrition Corner update - the Physical Activity Crossword! It shows students different terms related to physical fitness and reminds them to be active for at least one hour every day. Engaging in physical activity has many benefits, including lowering our risk for heart disease, stroke, type 2 diabetes, depression and some cancers. It can even benefit children academically! Be sure to encourage your students and family be active regularly!
Nutrition Corners are a wonderful way to reiterate nutrition messaging at sites of all kinds - schools, community centers, etc. To get a Nutrition Corner going at your site, contact your Nutrition Program Coordinator or Educator and click here for ideas.
