Recess and yogurt are two of my daughters' favorite things. So when I learned about Rally For Recess, I just had to share. Read below to learn some interesting facts.
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. iv To help rally moms and kids around this cause, Dannon® Danimals®, nutritious on-the-go dairy drinks and low-fat yogurts containing calcium for kids, 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 to enter and register. The top five schools in each of the categories with the most codes registered wins!
Hopefully you are as excited about this amazing opportunity and will share this information with your child's school. And while you are at it, why not win your little one a branded soccer ball and branded drawstring bag to help them get even more exercise.
