What to look for on Smart Talk Monday, April 7, 2014:
It’s critical to cultivate and nurture healthy eating habits and daily exercise in our children.
However, with busy schedules, junk foods, and video games, often times kids aren’t getting the adequate nutrition or physical activity they need.
Parents, schools, educators, businesses, programs and organizations, sports affiliations, and even kids want to change that.
Fuel Up to Play 60 is one of those programs. Launched by the National Dairy Council and the NFL, and supported by the U.S. Department of Agriculture, the program aims to encourage and empower school-age kids to take positive actions in eating nutritional foods and engaging in 60 minutes of daily physical activity.
Keystone Kids Go! is another program. Created by the Pennsylvania Departments of Health, Education, and Public Welfare, Keystone Kids Go! focus is early childhood and is comprised of six parts: Go Colorful!, Go Active!, Go Learn!, Go Healthy!, Go Families and Parents!, and PA NAP SACC.
Appearing on Monday’s Smart Talk to discuss the programs and ways to provide kids healthy and active lifestyles are Sharon Piano, Program Manager, Fuel up To Play 60 and Vonda Cooke, State Director, Child Nutrition Programs.
