Starting the New Year off with good health


Photo submitted Students at Pineville Middle School recently received a lesson in nutrition and the importance of physical activity thanks to the Bell County Cooperative Extension Service and the Pineville Family Resource Center. Family and Consumer Science Agent, Rebecca Miller, conducted a program entitled Professor Popcorn: My Plate to the sixth- and eighth-grade. Miller encouraged all kids to think about what and how much food goes on to their plate. Miller stated “drink more water instead of sugary drinks and make half your plate with fruits and vegetables.” Students participated in several hands on activities and ended the program with some exercise. Children were encouraged to set food and activity goals to start the new year off and to strive to be more healthy in 2017. For more information on programs the Bell County Extension Service has to offer, call 606-337-2376.
