Schools nationwide are cutting recess time due to limited resources, which can impede on your children’s physical development. In the past twenty years, children have lost an average of 8 hours of recess a week and some schools no longer provide play time for students. According to the American Academy of Pediatricians, the lack of playtime is a national crisis leading to a growing epidemic; childhood obesity.
Government and public health agencies recommend children engage in at 60 minutes of mild to strenuous activity each day. To help rally moms and kids around this cause, Dannon® Danimals®, the delicious and nutritious kids snacks that include on-the go smoothies and low fat yogurts with calcium, is launching a national initiative called “Rally for Recess”.
“Rally for Recess” is designed to create healthy competition, pitting school against school! Five schools have the opportunity to win new playground equipment and an all-day recess celebration. Danimals is committed to childhood health and wellness, which starts with good nutrition and an active lifestyle. Through February 8, 2012 purchasers can find codes on Danimals packaging (or free by mail) to enter and register their school online. The top school in each of five categories with the most codes registered wins!
