Banking on Wellness

Banking on Wellness is an exciting exercise and nutrition production that teaches school children, ages 5-12, about the importance of healthy foods and fitness. Students are encouraged to choose wholesome foods and engage in age-appropriate physical activity as they participate in three exciting games, including a bean bag toss, a relay race, and freeze tag. Each activity introduces an important component of healthy living, such as eating fruits and vegetables and daily exercise.

 

Banking on Wellness has been presented to over 8000 children since its inception in the fall of 2010. Dozens of organizations, including public and private schools, YMCA’s, church groups, cub scouts and the Autistic Service Center, have hosted this fun and engaging program. This one hour program is available free of charge, and is perfect for physical education classes, afterschool programs, summer camps, or special events

 

Banking on Wellness is funded exclusively through a generous grant provided by General Mills.
