Walk­ing for their break­fast

The 200-plus students at Har­bour Grace Pri­mary joined their coun­ter­parts throughout much of the prov­ince on Thurs­day, Oct. 11 to cel­e­brate Kids Eat Smart Week with a “Walk to Break­fast.” The theme for this year’s cel­e­bra­tion was “Good Eat­ing = Good Think­ing!” The walk un­der­scores the re­la­tion­ship be­tween phys­i­cal ac­tiv­ity, nu­tri­tion and learn­ing, and was an im­por­tant fundraiser for in­di­vid­ual Kids Eat Smart Clubs. The Kids Eat Smart Club at Har­bour Grace Pri­mary — one of 100 in the prov­ince — is well es­tab­lished, and is di­rected by a ded­i­cated group of par­ent vol­un­teers and oth­ers. Up to 100 students avail of a nu­tri­tious break­fast of toast, fruit, juice, milk and much more. Here are some im­ages from last week’s Walk to Break­fast.
