The winning recipe for a healthy lifestyle includes a combination of both good nutrition and physical activity. Your body needs a variety of nutrient rich foods to grow and prevent illness. And your body also needs to move and exercise every day.

Key things you need to know about leading a healthy lifestyle are:

  • Eat a healthy diet that includes fruits, vegetables and whole grain products
  • Control portion sizes and never "supersize"
  • Get active for at least 60 minutes, five times a week for ages 6-18
  • Avoid tobacco and illegal drugs all together

Well-nourished students have higher test scores, increased school attendance, improved concentration, and improved classroom behavior. Students, who are physically fit, sleep better and are better able to handle the physical and emotional challenges that they encounter during the day.

District Chef

Jaquez Jenkins,

Builds fantastic menus using a variety of flavors. He recently changed up some of our menus adding in some new recipes and flavors while keeping with some of the traditional meals our students love. His approach to food is summed up in one line; “with a southern heart, I strive to provide southern hospitality and flavors using fresh, healthy ingredients.” A “gastro-cuisine” chef at heart, Chef Joc’s style accommodates all types of diets including keto-friendly, gluten-free, paleo, vegetarian and more.
