Healthy Schools, Healthy Communities

You are here

 

 

 

Over the course of the 2019-2020 school year, your Early Care and Education Center received nutrition and physical education lessons through the Healthy Schools, Healthy Communities™ program, delivered by your child(ren)’s classroom teachers in partnership with the National Kidney Foundation of Michigan (NKFM).  NKFM staff are committed to connecting your family with activities and resources through virtual learning during these uncertain times. Each week, for the next three weeks, NKFM will post activities here that you can do with your child(ren).  Click on the weekly tabs to access each week’s enrichment activities and materials. Each week will contain:

  1. A calendar overview of the lesson activities to help you plan your week
  2. Activities with prompts for you to share information and ask questions with your child(ren) from the Healthy Schools, Healthy Communities™ curriculum.
  3. Health Through Literacy™ book read aloud videos
  4. FitBit™ physical activity videos
  5. Healthy Schools, Healthy Communities™ Healthy Snack Recipes

Before you begin, ask your child(ren) the following questions:

  1. What does healthy mean?
  2. What is your favorite food

Each activity will help answer these questions through fun conversations, videos, and recipes you can make at home. Here are some of the fun topics we will talk about, over the next three weeks, as part of our virtual Healthy Schools, Healthy Communities enrichment activities:

  1. Fruits and Veggies for Me
  2. I Move!
  3. Super Snacks
  4. Where My Food Comes From
  5. Healthy Me



We hope you find these activities fun and educational. Please send any feedback or requests to: [email protected]
