I worked more on the 5210 toolkit for the teachers. This time, I made sure I took a more comprehensive approach as far as finding useful facts for the parent handouts and tying the student challenges into everything. For National Institutes of Health with the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute, I found parent tips for moving more, incorporating the ‘1 or more hours of physical activity,’ healthy cooking and snacking tips, healthy snacks that are 100 calories of less, and a ‘We Can Grocery List Template.’ The Centers for Disease Control presented information for physical activity, needs for children, what counts as types of exercise, and overcoming barriers to physical activity. For the Germs portion for the month of December, Kids Health presented flu facts as well as vaccines and how often children should get them, E. Coli and food poisoning, and food safety, so kids won’t eat off the floor. Another helpful resource was the Palo Alto Medical Foundation.
