A big Thank you to the coaches and staff at Metro Elementary! I had a great time with your kiddos. Today we had 167 students in attendance. Your students were amazing and very respectful. We introduced our new video out called “Wonderland of Fantasy”to the 4th and 5th graders. This video teaches students about the brain and mental health. Did you know that the Cerebrum is the largest part of the brain and its capacity is 85% of the brain. We did some brain exercises and the kids were challenged on some of these exercises.
Today’s health tip is all about fruit! Any fruit, or juice that is 100% juice, is apart of the fruit group. If you are even moderately active during the day, you need to consume fruit daily! Not a lot, but just enough for your body. Children ages 4-8 need to consume 1 cup to 1.5 cups daily. A cup is mostly one piece of any fruit. Here are some examples of how much and what you could eat daily.
