We also piloted “Parent Nutrition Education Nights” at two schools this year and we had several groups of parents attend the series of classes based on AZNN campaign messages – “Fruits & Veggies – More Matters” “Make Half Your Grains Whole”, and “Healthy Proteins”.
One member of our team participated in a collaborative effort with campus staff during the I-Challenge in Pinal County. Shanna Murphree met with students at Hohokam Middle School weekly to discuss the importance of nutrition and physical activity. At the end of the I-Challenge program, the students participated in a “Decorate the Door” contest at Hohokam Middle School. The student team working with our staff won the contest with their “Skinny Santa” submission!
