It is important that kids (and parents) keep up their ENERGY. Here are some things to think about.

Get Your Rest

If you have a certain bed time you CAN go to bed earlier than that -- everybody needs sleep so listen to your body.

Get Your Exercise

Do a sport! Keeping your body moving gives you energy. You could join a team or just go out and play everyday.

Eat Healthy

JUNK FOOD takes your energy away and healthy food gives you energy. To get energy from your food eat things like: pasta, beans, whole wheat bread, even fruits and vegetables.

Remember - junk food is BAD - it robs your energy and you can become lazy.

Ok, that is all I have for today.  That is Healthy Stuff from me.... Jenny!

Back to School Time

If you are bringing a lunch to school here are some healthy tips:

1. If you like mayonnaise and avocado then why don't you smash the avocado for the mayonnaise. It can replace the mayonnaise and it much healthier for you.
2. You can bring beans for a snack -- kidney beans, black beans, garbanzo beans, chick peas. Beans are HEALTHY. They have fiber, calcium and iron. All good for your body.
3. Ok, if you have a milk system in your cafeteria and you like chocolate milk and they have it and they have plain milk go with the plain milk rather than chocolate. It has WAY less sugar and is good for your bones, muscles and teeth.

Have fun at school. More to come.That is the healthy tip for today! Check for more tips next time at Healthy Stuff with me..... Jenny! Bye for now.
