NUTRITION & EXERCISE

Good nutrition and physical fitness have to be the academic foundation that can propel students through a positive school experience -- so CALIE editors are making diet and active lifestyle our number one top back-to-school priority.


USA.gov notes:
Studies have shown that children who eat healthy, balanced breakfasts and lunches are more alert throughout the school day and earn higher grades than those who have an unhealthy diet. USA.gov's nutrition guide for a healthier school day covers healthy lunches, breakfasts, and snacks your child can get at school and tips on preparing a healthy school lunch and making small changes at home to improve your family's diet.

See CALIE's on-line Nutrition Guide.


LETSMOVE.GOV notes:
Children need 60 minutes of play with moderate to vigorous activity every day, but it doesn't have to occur at once. It all adds up! And remember, sleep is just as important and is an essential part of living an active life.

A recent study found that with each extra hour of sleep, the risk of a child being overweight or obese dropped by nine percent.

LETSMOVE.GOV is a terrific safe resource for both students and adults to learn the facts about eating healthy, and taking action to promote physical activity.

PHYSICAL FITNESS

In Indian Country, there are many free organized sports programs for tribal children, off- and on-reservation playgrounds are also great resources for creative exercise, as well as local municipal playgrounds and supervised activities.

HELP WITH HOMEWORK

Regularly completing school assignments has many benefits for children such as improving memory, academic discipline and lesson comprehension, developing study skills, and teaching children about time management.

Parents and family members can greatly assist young students by making sure they have a quiet, clean, well-lighted area to do their homework and by providing occasional help with lessons.

Learn more about how to help your kids with their homework.

SCHOOL SUPPLIES

Money can be saved by reusing last year's school supplies and keeping everything organized.

Sort through what you have and set aside what is still usable (recycle or toss out the unusable items) -- make a list of only what is needed and make sure your children learn to keep everything organized.

Your local Tribal TANF providers may be able to provide money and support for buying needy American Indian and Alaska Native families new school supplies throughout the school year.
