Talking About Heart Healthy

Trina Daugherty, a Le Bonheur Community Health Educator, recently spent the day with P. E. classes at Haywood Elementary to talk about being “Heart Healthy.” After a brief lesson on the heart and what it does, she then presented many fruits, vegetables, and other foods for students to label as “healthy” or “not healthy.” Students had a lot of fun getting rid of the not healthy foods! Following the fun lesson, each student chose a box of valentines to give to their families and friends, inviting them to be “heart healthy,” too!
