Go Be It: Ideas for change

Theme of the Week: Expand your horizons

STUDENTS:

  • Pick out a fruit or vegetable at the store or during lunch that you have NEVER eaten – give it a try! Use all your senses.

FAMILIES:

  • Try making an out-of the ordinary meal. Pick a new cuisine or different flavors to experiment with.

SCHOOLS:

  • Include healthy living in your daily announcements – 1 tip each day can make an impact!

Folks, remember: “Decide what to be and go be it.” -The Avett Brothers

Go Be It: Implement change in your community

This is the first post in what will be a weekly series of suggestions to get involved with school food and cycling. I will be giving one simple (and fun!) idea for students, schools and families.  Let the growing of change commence!

Theme of the Week: Educate yourself

STUDENTS:

  • Introduce yourself to a kitchen staff member. Ask him or her what their favorite part of working in the cafeteria is. Share with your class.

FAMILIES:

  • Take a family outing (bike ride, walk, scooter roll, etc.) in your neighborhood. Take note of pedestrian/bike friendly areas along with obstacles to traveling car-less. Are destinations such as stores or parks within a reasonable distance?

SCHOOLS:

  • Poll your students – what are their favorite cafeteria meals? Why?
