Cook Elementary students learn how veggies and fruits can make them Strong4Life

 

ATLANTA --  Today, Monday, March 26 from 10:00 a.m. to noon, students at Cook Elementary School will receive a Strong4Life passport, and each time they try a new fruit or veggie, they will receive a Strong4Life stamp in their passport. Students will also receive Strong4Life healthy tips and recipes to take home. 

 

Monday’s event is part of the Strong4Life School Challenge, a week-long program aimed to teach students healthy habits including drinking more water, limiting screen time, eating right and staying active. After a school completes the Strong4Life School Challenge, the Strong4Life Team makes four follow up visits to that school to refresh the students on the Strong4Life healthy habits. Monday’s event is a Strong4Life follow up visit at Cook Elementary. To date, the Strong4Life School Challenge has been in more than 24 schools in Macon, Columbus and Atlanta, reaching more than 11,000 students.

Whole Foods Market is donating all of the fruits and vegetables for Monday’s event, and about 20 members of Emerging Leaders for Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta (ELC) group will be on hand to assist the students from station to station. Children’s ELC program engages rising 30- to 40-year-old business professionals and community volunteers in the mission and vision of Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta at a leadership level.
