We are participating in the Kids Heart Challenge at Brookwood Elementary. We will focus on exercising every day, eating fruits and vegetables, drinking water and avoiding tobacco and too much sodium! Our goal is help students focus on developing healthy and kind hearts. Students can earn a glow-in-the-dark wristband when they register online and accept a heart healthy challenge – we ask students to choose one heart healthy activity to do every day from now until February 28 – our hope is that this activity will become a heart healthy habit! Students can choose one of the following challenges:
Drink water instead of sugary drinks
Eat one fruit or vegetable with every meal
Exercise for 60 minutes everyday
Do one kind deed for someone else everyday
To register and accept the challenge, just go to www.heart.org/kidsheartchallenge and select Brookwood Elementary School. No donations are needed to register, but wouldn’t it be cool if we had more students take a heart healthy challenge than any other school?
