Pizza, chicken fingers, fries, and chips on the side – all student friendly favorites that often end up on a school cafeteria’s lunch menu. But although these are what most students would call their favorite foods, their hearts and bodies are likely thinking otherwise.
As we mentioned in a previous blog, February is American Heart Month. In addition to increasing the amount of physical activity a student gets during their time in the classroom, another great way to honor this month’s observance is to carefully inspect the menu items offered to those who prefer to buy rather than bring and analyze the policies and procedures related to food that your school has in place. If while doing so you realize that your current atmosphere hinders a students’ ability to make healthy choices, here are a few tips on how you can start to transform your school into a healthier setting:
