We at Sip & Savor are proud to stand with our colleague organization, the National Association for Sport and Physical Education (NASPE), in support of a national initiative to increase physical activity before, during and after school.
We know that schools can be wonderful environments for teaching our children about physical education and nutrition, and they are also places where children can learn healthy habits that can last a lifetime. “Let’s Move In School” is based on the premise that comprehensive physical activity programs will equip children to “practice and apply movement skills in a culture of active learning.”
The activities stretch well beyond recess and include classroom activity breaks, activities teamed with classroom lessons, clubs, walk to school programs and intramural and interscholastic sports. These activities will help ensure that more children get at least 60 minutes of exercise a day. That’s something we all can support.
