    1. 1. How can schools nurture healthy, well-educated students? By Bruce KiddFaculty of Kinesiology and Physical Education University of Toronto
    2. 2.  1. Massive evidence for physical activity (PA) and health eating as contributors to healthy growth and development and effective learning 2. To enhance PA through public education, we must strengthen three effective but neglected avenues: ◦ HPE curriculum ◦ After-school sports ◦ Active school transport
    3. 3. 4
    4. 4.  3 risk factors cause four chronic diseases (cardiovascular disease, type 2 diabetes, many cancers and chronic lung disease) that cause over 50% of deaths worldwide. The risk factors are: Tobacco use Lack of physical activity Unhealthy diet (including harmful use of alcohol)
    5. 5.  Only 7% of Canadian children receive recommended 60 minutes daily Upper-class children 3X more likely to participate than those from lower class households
    6. 6.  Primary and secondary prevention of non-communicable diseases (NCDs), especially cardio-respiratory diseases, diabetes, some cancers, and obesity. Strengthened immune surveillance, reduced risk of infection. Strengthened bone health, reduced risk of osteoporosis. 5
    7. 7.  Strengthened social inclusion. Strengthened community safety, reduced youth crime. Fewer sexually transmitted diseases, unwanted pregnancies, sexual assaults. Increased school retention, academic achievement, and school safety. Strengthened citizenship (moral behaviour, empathy, reasoning and leadership). 6
    8. 8. 1. Release and implementthe 2010 Ontariocurriculum, with muchimproved sections on ◦ Sexual health ◦ Healthy eating ◦ Drug and alcohol awareness ◦ Mental health challenges
    9. 9.  While keeping coaching voluntary, boards and schools recognize the time commitment as part of workload Teachers unions respect members’ decisions to coach, and recognize ‘the negative impact on students when they consider using withdrawal of services from co-instructional activities as a bargaining tactic.’
    10. 10.  Promote school travel  Figure 1 planning, through education, enforcement, improved infrastructure, etc.
