My Students

I am a school nurse in a low-income school district where appropriate nutrition is a challenge for many students. In conjunction with our student wellness plan, we have teamed up with Let’s Go, a nationally recognized program that helps create healthier environments in schools, using the 5-2-1-0 model. (Eating 5 or more fruits and vegetables daily, 2 hours or less recreational screen time, 1 hour or more of physical activity, and 0 sugary drinks.) Water is the healthiest drink and the #1 thirst quencher. Studies show that most teens are mildly dehydrated and this can affect energy and concentration.

The health office is the place where I am able to have an impact on students and encourage these healthy habits, especially increased hydration with water.

For a lot of our middle schoolers, the health office is the only place where they will receive information on healthy living. I would like to provide a way to help them to at least have the opportunity to have adequate water intake throughout the school day.

My Project

When the students in my school visit the health office, one of the questions I always ask is what they have had to eat or drink. The majority of students will say they have had food, but not a lot to drink. Dehydration, even if only mild, can cause tiredness, headaches, lack of concentration, and reduced mental performance.

Water bottles will provide constant access to water, increase water consumption and help maintain hydration.

As well as the increased health benefits, having water bottles would also help to alleviate trips to the water fountain during classes. Thank you for your help!!
