Enterprise High School students weighed in on the national campaign against childhood obesity last month.
Debbie Hadden's fifth period Family and Consumer Studies (FACS) class teamed up with Family Career and Community Leaders of America (FCCLA) member Jennifer Wood to hold class sessions with Enterprise fourth through sixth graders, teaching them about childhood obesity and healthy life style choices.
The theme of the Jan. 19-21 project was "Fuel Up to Play 60."
The high schoolers taught the younger students about healthy eating habits, a good body image and maintaining an ideal weight by eating healthy foods and exercising 60 minutes a day.
The week included fun games, healthy snacks, obstacle course and a poster contest.
Winners of the poster contest received $5 each. They were Savanah Barreto, sixth grade; Kobe Ketscher, fifth grade; and Georgetta Falk, fourth grade.
As part of a class competition, the children were also encouraged to fill out a chart of how much time each day they turned off the television and went out to exercise. The winner was Lorri Fischer's fifth grade class.
