Physical activity events

The Institute of Medicine recommends that children expend 50 percent of their daily energy while in school.

Support your school's efforts to make every day and active day by taking advantage of lessons and activities, events, and programs designed to help students meet the recommended 60 minutes of daily moderate activity and develop activity habits for life.

“The Collection Connection 4-H Club had a great time celebrating Go for the Greens. They brought healthy and nutritious "green" foods to share; made spinach and mushroom pizza as a snack; and even shared their health lesson with the local food pantry by collecting canned vegetables for a donation.”
