Elementary School Health Program Fights Heart Disease Before It Begins

Filed under: InspirationFitnessObese

Yes! This is such an incredible program and we hope more schools nationwide start to initiate it!

To combat the obesity epidemic plaguing the nation, 12,000 schools have implemented a program designed to create a healthy school environment by promoting healthy eating and physical activity for students.

A report on an Illinois elementary school proves just a few healthy changes can make monumental differences!

To encourage kids to eat healthier they have replaced fried food in the cafeteria with fruits and veggies. The school has also eliminated an annual bake sale fundraiser in favor of raising money while burning calories with a one mile walk-a-thon!

Check out the video above for more details on the amazing initiative that aims to prevent heart disease, our nation's number one killer, before it begins!

Remember, ANY school can take part in this program, so speak to your district officials today to bring change to your area!
