ALPHARETTA, Ga. — Creek View Elementary students participated in the Strong4Life program this year.
Strong4Life is a wellness movement launched by Children's Healthcare of Atlanta dedicated to igniting health-related societal changes and reversing the epidemic of childhood obesity in Georgia.
The program strives to inspire kids and their families to develop lifelong healthy habits in a fun and positive manner.
During their participation, the students learned about four Strong4Life habits that encourage a healthier lifestyle.
These healthy habits included:
• making half their plate veggies and fruits at mealtimes;
• being active for 60 minutes a day;
• limiting their "screen time" to one hour;
• drinking more water and fewer sugary drinks.
Strong4Life reaches families through public awareness, policy change efforts, school programs, health care provider programs and community partnerships, and works to provide parents and caregivers the support they need to accomplish wellness-related goals with their children.
