Improving Nutrition and Fitness in Schools

This presentation briefly covers the benefits of proper nutrition and routine exercise, and the risks of poor nutrition and physical inactivity among adolescents.  I hope the information in this presentation motivates proper nutrition and fitness in schools.  This presentation is directed to all those directly involved with adolescents in schools, which consists of parents of students attending primary and secondary schools, students, teachers, school cafeteria staff/school nutrition department, and sports team coaches.  Please click on the link https://environmentalhealthtoday.files.wordpress.com/2010/02/nf-presentation.ppt to view presentation. Questions and comments are welcomed.  Thank you and I hope you enjoy the presentation.

  1. Dear Carai,

    I really enjoyed your presentation. As a child psychologist, I often see that children have increased academic and behavioral issues when they are not eating regular, healthy meals. Particular concern arises when students skip breakfast as well as lunch. This can lead to binge eating in the evenings as well as poor concentration and irritability during the school day.

    Best regards,
    Alyssa
