Nutrition Education should be part of your coordinated health program and can be easily integrated into core curriculum in schools and child care sites. Choose educational programs that are fun, age-appropriate, hands-on, culturally relevant, based on scientific evidence and involve parents.
Physical Education/Activity should be fun but it should also include meaningful content, appropriate instruction and opportunities to learn. Children and adolescents need at least 60 minutes of moderate-intensity on most days for health.
