I am on the AAFCS "Taking it to the Streets" committee and we are focusing on the fight against obesity this year. It is "another one of my passions".
I'm so excited about the new class my co-workers and I proposed for Fall 2012. We have a Healthy Living class in the works with a food and nutrition component alternating with an exercise class in the physical education department. We are going to address healthy cooking and eating, how to become more active in FUN ways and make activity a part of daily living. I'll keep you posted on our work as we continue our course development.
There are schools all over the country working on programs to fight obesity, the "Taking it to the Street" committee is looking forward to hearing from you about the works you are doing in your school and community. As you let us know about some of your activities I will be happy to share your work with others.
