Healthy Habits

My students need the book Healthy Snacks, Healthy You! to maintain healthy eating habits during the summer break.

My Students

At 7:15 every morning, almost 1,000 children line up for free or reduced-priced breakfast at our school. Thirty five of those students are mine. In a school where almost 90 percent of students receive free or reduced priced meals, summer nutrition is a big concern.

My students come from all different backgrounds.

Over 80 languages are spoken at home in our district. We are a high poverty school in an urban area. The students are exposed to different cultures from birth, and the overall attitude of our community is accepting. Because of the low socio-economic status of most of our students, parents sometimes work two or three jobs. This means that students are often responsible for meals, homework, and entertainment when they get home from school.

My Project

I am requesting a copy of the book, Healthy Snacks, Health You! for each of my students. Because summer is quickly approaching, free breakfast and lunch will not be available to students. After speaking to several of them about their eating habits at home, I am concerned about their nutrition once school lets out for the summer. Not only will this book give students a great book to read over the summer, but it will provide them with ideas for snacks they can make themselves that are both nutritious and delicious. Students will develop these healthy eating habits at an early age, promoting a lifestyle of nutritious food choices. After much research, I chose this book over several others because of the simple, affordable snack ideas and the science behind them.

By donating to this project, you can help ensure that my students receive the nutrition their growing bodies need during the summer.

My hope is that students will develop healthy eating habits, continue reading, and enjoy a new pastime this summer by cooking and reading this book. Your donation can make this hope possible.
