Posted on 02/09/2018

WEEKLY HEALTH TIP - By Mrs. Best/P.E. Teacher - Health Tip #20 - The month of February is heart awareness month at RMAE. Students K-5th grade are learning five ways to make their hearts healthy:

  1. Be physically active for 60 minutes per day
  2. Color your plate with fruits and vegetables
  3. Avoid smoking
  4. Avoid sugary drinks, drink more water
  5. Watch out for salt, eat junk food infrequently

With over 200 varieties of ripe, juicy delicious fruits and crisp, savory veggies, there is an almost endless bounty to choose from. Eating fruits and veggies of different colors- red, dark green, yellow, blue, purple, white, and orange provides the broadest range of nutrients. Colorful fruits and veggies are dietary sources of important nutrients many people don’t get enough of, such as fiber, folate, potassium, vitamin A, vitamin C, and magnesium.
