4H Healthy Lifestyles Emphasized At Midway Elementary

Six 4H clubs were organized at Midway Elementary School.  The 3rd, 4th, and 5th graders  completed the 4H Healthy Lifestyles program.  This exciting national 4H program, sponsored by Walmart, encourages young people to develop and maintain healthy and active lifestyles.   The project emphasized healthy eating and active living for youth ages 8 and above.  The six hands-on, interactive lessons with food samples and games were taught by County Extension Agent Deon Legette, 4H volunteer, Mrs.  Doris McGougan, and 4H teen ambassador, Sidney Goff.  Topics included Limit Sugary Drinks, Eat More Fruits/Vegetables, Reading Food Labels, Eat More Whole Grains, Eat Healthier Fast Food, and Power Up Your Breakfast.  Students received weekly newsletters with a summary of the day’s lesson and recipes. The youth were also able to sample healthy snacks after each session.
