Description

Health Fairs allows unique opportunities for dialog between parents and students. This program is meant to improve student outcomes and school performance for all ages. Health Fairs engages family and communities by offering educational, non - threatening and even a festive environment in which to explore attitudes and approaches to food. Health Fairs' goal is to the help the community examine present health behaviors and facilitate positive lifestyle changes. These behaviors include attitudes around food. During this program, some major causes of obesity are covered along with steps to avoid obesity at any age. Chefsville offers activities and resources to empower parents and students. Health Fairs offers information sharing and provides additional core academic activities that will allow families to make positive health and nutritional choices. Focus on this program is on understanding sugar, salt, and fat; and will allow participants to discover some of the history about the American diet. Medical publications and studies have shown that when students lower the amount of sugar and salt they consume there is an improve scholastic performance, attendance, focus and ability to comprehend academic material. Parents will see long-term success develop as both they and their child(ren) seek to adopt a healthier lifestyle. Activities include connecting measuring, fractions, food science, social studies as we dive into some history about to understand food systems and food migration. For younger kids learning about colors and eating different colored foods to maintain health. For older kids understanding conversions used in measuring practices will allow them to connect to health issues. Chefsville wants to be part of your campus' health fair.
