Back to School Night is a great opportunity to show the parents and students how your school plans to be healthy this year!
Host a healthy back to school night with these 5 tips:
Showcase any run club or fitness club information.
Share ideas for healthy lunches/snacks.
Packing lunch everyday is a job in itself! Quick, healthy ideas can be hard to come by, help by setting up a display or list of healthy lunch and snack ideas.
Set up a sugar shockers display.
Our display shows popular beverages and how much sugar is in each of them. Parents and students are always shocked to see how much sugar is in their daily drinks! Added math bonus: have the students convert grams to teaspoons to measure how many teaspoons are in each drink.
Have a ‘brain break’ in the beginning of the night to wake everyone up.
Put up Save the Date reminders for Family Fun and Fitness Night.
If you’re hosting a family fun and fitness night (or any other event!), hang up or pass out save the dates for parents to add to their calendars!
These ideas can be used to put a healthy twist on any event you’re holding at your school!
We’d love to hear how you made your back to school night a healthy event. Share your ideas in our comments section!
