A Healthy Good Life for Students

By GoodLife Fitness Community on 21/10/2015

dancing_300pxl.jpgStudents of St. Anne and St. Robert Catholic Schools in London ON are helping researchers find better ways to prevent childhood obesity by participating in the Nutrition Ignition! Program. 

Nutrition Ignition! creates a healthy living culture within the school by providing constant and consistent support to play and eat healthy.  That culture also extends beyond the school and into the home, where it can influence a family’s behaviour over a lifetime.

Led by principal investigator Dr. Danielle Battram of Brescia University College and Drs. Alan Salmoni and Laura Misener of Western University, students from kindergarten to grade eight and their families receive lessons, snacks and plenty of opportunities to play from program staff and undergraduates and graduate students from Kinesiology and Foods and Nutrition at Western University and Brescia University College.

oodLife Kids Foundation’s vision is for every Canadian child to have the opportunity to live a fit and healthy good life.  Our continued support of Nutrition Ignition! is in recognition of the program’s vast potential to provide education and insight in helping to promote regular physical activity and healthy eating habits in the school community.
