On the Move

On the Move

Karen Bettenhausen, Extension Agent presente On the Move to 5th Grade students at the Ashley and Wishek Public Schools in November 2016. She met with the students to share nutrition and fitness information mixed with fun activities  designed to engage the student and reinforce what they are learning. 

On the Move to Better Health is a five-week school-based curriculum for fifth-graders. It is based on MyPlate, the current icon for good nutrition. The curriculum aims to increase fruits, vegetables and calcium-rich foods in the diets of children and improve fitness habits. Parents receive newsletters and participate in goal setting and other family-based activities.

Plans are to visit the schools in the fall of 2017 to share the program with the current 5th graders.
