Ka’ūmana Elementary School is an approved Blue Zone school. With this designation, we are committed to promoting a healthy lifestyle with exercise and healthy eating. Over the last month, we have noticed an increase in unhealthy snacks brought to school. There are students bringing in soda and candy as snacks and others eating bags of chips for lunch. All students are encouraged to bring healthy snacks such as fruits, vegetables, 100 calorie snacks, crackers and water. Sugary drinks and snacks are strongly discouraged. USDA suggests parents select foods with nutrients as much as possible including calcium, magnesium, potassium and fiber. Mahalo for your support and for encouraging healthy eating habits.
