Healthy habits

Students in the running and soccer clubs at Corinth-Holders Elementary recently learned the many benefits of healthy eating from students in the Corinth Holders High School Nutrition Club.

High school students in the nutrition club, led by Kathryn Townsend, visited the elementary students during their afterschool club time to teach the children about healthy eating habits. Parents and guardians were also invited to learn about low-cost healthy options, and students were able to sample various healthy foods, such as mixed fruit, pita bread and hummus, cheese, whole wheat bagels with turkey and assorted vegetables.

The younger students were then invited to play Trivia and Pictionary to learn more about food groups and what is healthy for their bodies. Corinth-Holders Elementary students were able to connect healthy eating with their fitness goals in the running and soccer clubs.
