  3. 3. HIP HOP <ul><li>Looking at body image… </li></ul><ul><li>Looking at activity levels… </li></ul><ul><li>Looking at developing competencies in terms of physical health… </li></ul><ul><li>Looking at understanding healthy input & nutrition… </li></ul><ul><li>Looking at life-long wellness… </li></ul><ul><li>and not just obesity prevention! </li></ul>
  4. 4. Statistics <ul><li>U.S. Prevalence </li></ul><ul><li>Over the past three decades, the childhood obesity rate has more than doubled for preschool children aged 2-5 years and adolescents aged 12-19 years, and it has more than tripled for children aged 6-11 years. At present, approximately nine million children over 6 years of age are considered obese. </li></ul>

  6. 6. How Does This Impact Your Students? <ul><li>Sub-optimal diets, inactivity, and hunger are also affecting our children’s ability to learn. Poorly </li></ul><ul><li>nourished children are often tired, apathetic, and unable to concentrate. This also contributes to illness and absences. </li></ul><ul><li>When children are active, their academic performance improves. “Nearly 200 studies on the effect of exercise on cognitive functioning suggest that physical activity supports learning” http://www.actionforhealthykids.org/docs/pe_ba_jun.pdf </li></ul><ul><li>Again, weight is a part, but health and wellness are the goals. </li></ul>
