What did you eat today? Did the hot weather encourage you to drink the promoted drinks or to go back to the basics of water? Did you see the latest report from the American Academy of Pediatrics about energy drinks, including drinks like Gatorade for our children. As a teacher I must not only set the example, but I must help our students take a deep look at what and how they eat. Even those of us who “eat good”, is what we are eating really good or just better than what others are doing? This is not a matter of comparisons. It is a matter of doing what is best for us and our children.
As a family, as a school, as a community, can we be on a mission to change – make a difference in our community? Starting with our own diet, we can all be resolved to learn about our food and our health. No excuses, we will be the teachers and parents that our children deserve.
