Running Start's Nutrition Activities explore the importance of each meal, the value of eating a variety of foods, healthy and less healthy food options, and how to select foods that help our bodies stay strong. Each activity is designed to be done in 10-15 minutes to fit into busy schedules.
Healthy eating and physical activity are the two most significant self-managed factors affecting people's health. We believe both should be addressed regularly in every child's education. A natural complement to NYRR's youth running programs and resources, these activities helps educators and parents with little time or expertise engage their children in fun activities that teach them to think about what they eat and make smart food choices.
