A Lesson in Healthy Eating

Adopting the theme “Healthy Mind, Healthy Body” for the 2012-13 school year, Gribbin Elementary School has been participating in many activities during the year that highlight the need for proper nutrition, exercise and overall health. Students throughout the school had an opportunity to enjoy an afternoon of healthy eating, featuring a variety of nutritious snacks. Classes made everything from smoothies and trail mix to yogurt parfaits, with students assembling their own snacks. Every class shared their healthy snack with another class in their grade.

Teachers have been discussing the importance of maintaining a healthy diet and lifestyle with their students. The initiative serves to educate the students on healthy choices and food options in everyday life.
