Parents received diabetes and blood pressure testing from a Health Educator from the Newark Community Health Care Center. They were also provided with information about healthy eating habits from a Rutgers University dietitian. Parents also participated in a Pumpkin Twist Exercise.
Murray the Monkey visited our scholars and provided them with samples of healthy snacks! Students visited the healthy snack station to choose from a selection of carrots, strawberries, blueberries, broccoli, and more. Students also visited a sugar station to observe how many teaspoons of sugar can be found in everyday snacks we eat.
It was a fun, healthy and informative week for all.
