One of the healthiest things you can do for yourself is exercise.

Exercise can help you feel more energized and sleep better. Try to do 30 minutes of physical activity every day.

Work hard enough to elevate your breathing and heart rate, but not so hard you can’t carry on a conversation.

Try walking, jogging, bicycling or swimming. Sports like basketball and soccer are fun workouts too.

Check with your health care provider before beginning a regular exercise program, especially if you haven’t exercised for a while.

Listen to your body. Stop exercising if it hurts, you experience extreme breathlessness, or irregular heartbeat.

Start your school day with breakfast!  Breakfast at home or at school including whole grains and fruits give students energy to learn! Children can’t learn when they are hungry. Lunchtime is time to refuel. 

Fruits and vegetables are low in fat, calories, and sodium, yet packed with vitamins, minerals, fiber and other key nutrients.

Try to eat 3 servings of fruit and 4 servings of vegetables daily. Adding fruits and vegetables to your meal can also add color, flavor and texture to your plate.

Blend it – Make a tasty fruit smoothie as a snack or for breakfast. Blend low-fat milk or 100% fruit juice with bananas, strawberries, blueberries, or raspberries (frozen or non-frozen) for a delicious cool drink.

Pep up your sandwich – Add them to your sandwiches or wraps. Try sliced tomatoes, avocado, or roasted vegetables for extra flavor.

Mix it up! Add shredded carrots, sliced strawberries, grape tomatoes, spinach leaves or mandarin oranges for a fun and flavorful salad.

Practice safety when biking by always wearing a helmet and being aware of your surroundings. When biking or walking, take care to only cross the street at crosswalks.

Stay healthy throughout the school year with visits to your health care provider.
