The Student Toolkit, Step Up to a Healthier School, is now featured on the Alliance’s home
page www.healthiergeneration.org and in the Helpful Tools section. The toolkit is a series of steps
and related tools to help students assess their schools’ snack and beverage environments and to
put into action steps for making changes. The toolkit includes an inventory worksheet, a student
survey, talking points, an action plan, a template for writing a success story, and more. This
―Trailblazing Project‖ will provide ongoing, in-depth support to the students in these schools that
are stepping up to make changes in their schools while using the toolkit.

Active Recess Helps Pitt Kids Be 'Fit Kids' The Daily Reflector, November 20, 2007
Penny McCreary's students know how to move. McCreary's K-1 combination class students get
up from their desks, wave their arms, sing loudly and dance around the room, with the teacher's
encouragement and at appropriate times, of course. "I like to move it and shake it," McCreary
said. Her class participates in active recess in the classroom to ensure that the students are
getting enough exercise. Friday morning, the class got up, formed a line and sang along to "Tony
Knows," while acting out the song and touching their toes, knees and noses to go along with the
"Tony Knows" lyrics. The resource referenced in this article can be found for free at
http://www.ncpe4me.com/energizers.html

SnowSports Industries America (SIA) Winter Feels Good Launches New Toolkit for
Teachers and Parents The Winter Feels Good toolkit is a great learning tool that features
animated characters called Snow Monsters (Snowball the Tiger, Snowboard Beaver, X-Wolf and
Snowshoe Roo) and is an easy introduction to experiencing Mother Nature's winter playground.
Initially developed for use by teachers, recreation professionals and scout leaders, many portions
of the tool kit can be enjoyed at home by children and their families.

The tool kit provides eight learning modules that appeal to elementary school children because of
its flash, bright colors and sound effects. Families can apply some of what they learn on
Saturday, January 12, 2008 at the 13th annual Winter Trails event that offers free snowshoeing
and/or cross country skiing at more than 100 locations in the U.S. and Canada. For a complete
list of Winter Trails venues at Nordic centers, National Forest and Park Service sites and snow
resorts, visit www.wintertrails.org.

To download the online interactive toolkit, simply visit www.winterfeelsgood.com. A special version of
the tool kit is being distributed this winter via CD-ROM as a beta test to schools in New England,
portions of the Midwest and Mid-Atlantic, and the Rocky Mountain states of Colorado and Utah.
Winter Trails Day takes place at more than 100 locations in the U.S. and Canada.

Funding Opportunities:
    o   Love Your Veggies: Hidden Valley Ranch's National School Lunch Campaign
        will award 51 elementary schools across the U.S. a $10,000 grant to help get more
        fresh fruit and veggies on kids' lunch trays. http://www.loveyourveggiesgrants.com/

    o   Midwest Dairy Council is pleased to announce its 2007 Breakfast Awards! Up to
        $10,000 will be awarded in each state that is bringing breakfast to their students in
        creative ways and with great results. Many schools recognize this opportunity and offer
        breakfast in the cafeteria. But there is even a better way to bring breakfast to children –
        using alternate breakfast service options. Offering breakfast in the classroom or outside
        of the cafeteria increases participation by providing service for children who arrive late or
        who prefer to socialize rather than eat, and by helping to remove the potential social
        stigma that the program is meant for low-income students.

        Schools that offer a breakfast service or an expanded breakfast option are encouraged to
        enter to win a 2007 Midwest Dairy Council Breakfast Award!

Exercise Builds Strong Brains, Too USA Today, October 29, 2007
Kids who play hard every day may be making their brains, as well as their bodies, stronger.
A new study reports that children who play vigorously for 20 to 40 minutes a day may be better
able to organize schoolwork, do class projects and learn mathematics. "Children who are not
active may be at a disadvantage academically," says Catherine Davis, an associate professor of
pediatrics at the Medical College of Georgia in Augusta. She presented the research last week at
the annual meeting of the Obesity Society, a group of weight-loss professionals.

                   Heritage Gets Physical: School Finds Inventive Ways To Comply With
                     State Rule
                     Tennessee The Daily Times, November 7, 2007
                    Squeezing 90 minutes for physical activity into a school week can be a tricky
                    proposition considering all the preparation to meet the demands of state testing
                   and No Child Left Behind. But a new state mandate requires just that: Every
         school has to provide 90 minutes of physical activity each week, and this is separate
from physical education. The mandate was passed into law in the spring of 2006, but lawmakers
gave school systems a year to develop their programs. So at Heritage High School 23 minutes at
the end of the first period four days a week are devoted to the art of wiggling, moving about and
in general engaging in some type of physical activity.

Fitness Program Serves Local Kids The Pitt News, November 19, 2007
Karate and dance may sound like a peculiar combination, but for the participants of Saturday's
Kids, the two forms of physical activity blend two important ingredients: exercise and fun. Since
the fall of 2004, the free Saturday's Kids program has provided physical education and physical
fitness for children in the Pittsburgh area. Children from 6 to 12 years old are eligible. Every
Saturday morning, the University closes Trees Hall to students and instead, opens the facility to
the program's children and their parents. Starting the session as a large group, the kids and their
instructors warm up and stretch before being divided into two groups. While one group goes to
the dance studio to learn the day's dance lesson, the other group practices their karate
techniques in the multi-purpose room. Eventually, the groups rotate so that all the participants
have an equal share of both activities.

     Recess Rules
      There are a growing number of parents, educators, policy-
      makers, law enforcement professionals and health experts who
      have come to recognize the benefits of play and are looking for
      ways to help kids be more physically active in a healthy and safe
      environment. This report by Sports4Kids and funded by the
      Robert Wood Johnson Foundation analyzes several sources of
      data to identify opportunities for increasing children's physical activity and to understand
      the factors that could contribute to or impair efforts to maximize those opportunities. This

      questions about the funding disparities that exist in the universe of physical activity.

Start your own Healthy Cooking Club - Cooking experiences help young people learn about
ingredients and how to make healthful choices in food preparation. Food skills may increase
               options for youth who rely heavily on fast-food choices. Knowledge and attitudes
                 about food that are gained from food preparation may be transferable to other
                   food choice settings. The following link provides afterschool staff with step by
                    step instructions on starting a healthy cooking club.

               After-School Program. The Child and Adult Care Food Program provides federal
funds to afterschool programs that serve supper to children age 12 and under during the school
year. The supper can be served at any time during the afterschool program. A snack also can be
served as long as there are three hours between the times snack and supper are served. (Please
note that the serving of milk suggested in this resource must be 1% or skim milk to abide by the
Healthy Schools guidelines.) http://www.frac.org/Out_Of_School_Time/pdfs/sup_broch.pdf

Active Living Research Identifies Strategies for Addressing Physical Inactivity Among
Youth
The childhood obesity epidemic is widely recognized as a threat to children’s health and quality of
life, and also to the nation’s health care system and economy. Changing the environments—
homes, schools and neighborhoods—in which children live, learn and play is now seen as an
essential strategy for reversing the obesity epidemic.
The Designing for Active Living Among Children Research Summary summarizes current
research into environmental factors and policies related to young people's physical activity and
sedentary behavior patterns, and how these in turn may be linked to obesity.
