Healthy Snack Student Challenge

          School principals in the western region of the NLESD recently received a copy of their own school and district results in our most recent Student Nutrition Survey. While it seems that our students’ nutritional habits are moving in the right direction, it is evident that many students and parents need education on the importance of eating healthy. We ask for each school’s support with our three District priorities to:

1. Increase fruit & vegetable consumption

2. Increase the number of students having milk for recess and lunch

3. Decrease consumption of sugar-sweetened beverages.

To support schools, we have scheduled for the month of February a Healthy Snack Student Challenge to encourage students to bring in a healthy snack for recess. This could be used to help schools promote fruits & vegetables and milk consumption and also to help discourage sugar-sweetened beverages. The Challenge can be done for any two week period suitable for a school.
