Healthy__Fit.pngAt ActivEd, we believe that everyone needs a healthy, balanced life. To support that, we are starting a new blog series called Be healthy and fit Friday.

Our product, Walkabouts, focuses on active learning. While active learning is important, it is just one of many things that can help our children (and us!) live healthy lifestyles and develop healthy habits. 

This week, our focus is the Healthy Eating Plate created by a team at Harvard School of Public Health and Harvard Medical School. The Healthy Eating Plate is based on the best research available and details what a healthy diet includes. Key elements are:

  • Whole grains
  • Healthy protein
  • Fruits
  • vegetables
  • Healthy oils
  • Water

Staying active is an important component of healthy eating as noted on the Healthy Eating Plate. We all know that eating right and staying active are keys to healthy living. The Healthy Eating Plate is a great way to make sure you and those you love are fueling your bodies to stay fit!

Make learning fun and improve outcomes

Walkabouts are online adventures that transform math, language arts, and reading fundamentals into standards-based, movement-rich lessons for Pre-K through second grade students. At ActivEd, we know that kids learn more, are more engaged, and are healthier when they are active both in and out of the classroom.
