EDP2001A THE IMPORTANCE OF EATING HEALTHY 16 to 17 million children live in
homes where they are at risk of going hungry (1 in 6 households)
1 in 3 children are overweight
1 in 6 children (6-17) are obese
30% of children (6-17) participate in 20 minutes plus vigorous physical activity on a daily basis
Children NEED 60 minutes of exercise daily Good nutrition is
essential to healthy brain development Children need a wide variety
of nutrients to assist in their
growth & development Protein
Complex carbohydrates
Healthy fats
Vitamins Children who exercise regularly and eat healthy are more likely to: Perform better academically
Feel better about themselves, their bodies, and their abilities
Cope with stress better
Regulate emotions better
Avoid feelings of low-self esteem, anxiety, and depression Children need a wide variety of nutrients to assist in their daily growth and development and to protect them from childhood diseases Healthy eating cuts down on the risk for cavities, eating disorders, unhealthy weight control behaviors, malnutrition, and iron deficiency Healthy eating and consistent physical activity help to prevent chronic illnesses that appear in adulthood associated with obesity heart disease
high blood pressure
several forms of cancer Hunger can damage a child's
progress in school The brain needs energy in order to function, glucose provides that energy [sugar]
Whole grains, vegetables, and fruits can be converted
If a child does not receive a sufficient amount of glucose, their physical & emotional energy will drop and they will have difficulty:
Paying attention
Concentrating The brain is only 2% of the body's weight but it needs 20% of the body's energy When breakfast is skipped, the food choices throughout the day do not make up for the vitamins and nutrients already missed Children who regularly eat breakfast have better standardized test scores, behave better, and are less hyperactive than their non-breakfast eating counterparts Children who eat sugary breakfasts seem to eat more at lunch IDEAL BREAKFAST:
An egg
A slice of whole grain toast with nut butter
A piece of fruit
A glass of low-fat milk Breakfast is Extremely Important (Tofu, lean meat, and whole grain cereals are also good options) Sugary cereals and white flour pancakes (w/ syrup) will only leave children hungry and tired halfway through the morning BRAIN FOOD
Sugar in cookies, cakes, and soda can provide glucose-- but only a "jolt"
Makes a sudden spike in energy but the drop from the spike is even quicker
It can lead to emotional slumps, fatigue, and concentration problems Protein A child's brain needs protein to grow new brain cell connections.
Protein breaks down essential amino acids to build new neural pathways, allowing communication between cells in the brain Where can you find essential amino acids? Eggs, meat, fish, & dairy products
(ex: milk, cheese, yogurt) Glucose cont. Fats Fats are important because the brain is mostly made of fat (60%)
Good fats: milk, dairy, eggs, avocados, seeds, nuts
Children need more fat than adults because their brain is still developing Fish Good brain food if high in omega-3s
Cold water fish are good:
Salmon, mackerel, herring, lake trout, and sardines Shellfish, tuna, catfish, tilapia, shrimp, clams, scallops, crabs, and oysters To get the most for your brain,
eat several servings a week Physical Education Considered "good brain food"
Students who spend more time in physical education maintained or improved grades and standardized test scores than students who were in an instructional class longer. March is National
Nutrition Month! Healthy Eating & Education Watch out for pesticides sprayed on fruits and vegetables. Studies have showed a link to attention deficit disorders like ADD and ADHD Parenting and Healthy Eating Children imitate their parents.
Since they exert the most influence, they can mold their children to have healthy eating habits and attitudes toward food as they grow up Control the types of foods that children have access to in the home
Ex: fruits, vegetables, lean protein A family that eats together at regular mealtimes can help establish positive nutrition habits and healthy weights for children POSITIVES OF EATING HEALTHY Controls weight
Provides energy
Prevent diseases and health issues
Helps with processes like digestion
Maintains healthy cholesterol Appleton High School in Wisconsin switched their poor nutritious school lunch with fresh foods and water as the main beverage. It resulted in improved behavior Sugary snacks and high glycemic index foods just make kids hungrier RESOURCES Walsh, David. (2011). Smarter parenting, smarter kids. New York NY: Free Press

Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act of 2010 Created by Michelle Obama
Designed to feed kids nutritious meals and fight childhood hunger New Standards Enacted
in Reauthorization: Ensures students are offered both vegetables and fruits every day of the week
Increases offerings of whole grain-rich foods
Offers only fat-free or low-fat milk Limit calories based on the age of children being served to ensure the proper portion size
Increase the focus on reducing the amounts of saturated fats, trans fats, added sugars and sodium Incentives for Schools "6-cent Rule": reimburses schools an additional six
cents for every lunch they serve that meets the new
meal standards Healthy Eating & the Media 80% of food ads on children's networks are
for foods of poor nutritional quality Healthier School Challenge: Voluntary certification program initiative that recognizes thousands of schools for their efforts in improving food and beverage offerings, teaching kids about nutritious food choices, being physically active, and providing opportunities for physical activities Teachers and Healthy Eating The USDA offers tips for teachers: 1. Build nutrition and physical activity
into your curriculum
2. Don't use food as incentives or rewards Ideas for programs and
activities for teachers in their classroom can be found at:
