In this post I am going to be talking about the Healthy Eating at Schools organization. I am going to be giving a brief overview of what they do and how it could help kids make healthy decisions.
The Healthy Eating at Schools Organization is run mostly in British Columbia. Their main objective is to try to help different communities ideas come up with different ideas on how to make healthy eating choices. One successful thing that happened that they were part of is called the Terra Nova School Gardens. This project is an agriculture project going on in Richmond B.C. and it is for any elementary school student. The kids at these school plan their gardens in the winter and plant them in the spring.
On this site there is many amazing features. The six tabs at the top can take you to many different ways on how you would be able to be and to eat healthy. Some of the things that I found most useful on there site include the success stories that they have and how we can take action to eat healthy. I think this site would help kids make healthy decisions because they will see that kids around their age are making healthy eating decisions. Of what I have seen and heard other people say, a lot of kids want to do what their peers do because it will make them ‘cool’.
Here is my critical thinking question:
What can you do to help kids to be able to eat healthy at school?
