"Healthy Habits" Classroom Presentations
One important component of the Community Outreach Department is the "Healthy Habits" classroom presentations. Last school year, "Healthy Habits" was presented to 16,000 children across the state. These fun and informative classroom presentations are 30-minutes in length and are geared for children in Kindergarten through 5th grade.
As part of each presentation, a short, high-energy DVD is used to teach children the importance of healthy eating and having an active lifestyle to maintain good health. Each child will receive a goody bag with a coloring/activity booklet about healthy habits, crayons, a toothbrush, a small tube of toothpaste, and a jump rope.
Arkansas Children's Hospital and the statewide Circle of Friends organization provides presentations and all health materials FREE of charge to your school.
If you are interested in having "Healthy Habits" presentations at your school, or if you have any questions, please contact Jennifer Hurst at HurstJL@archildrens.org or 501.364.6442.
