Pick a Better Snack Program in Wayne County Schools

Wayne County Pick A Better Snack students are making healthy living goals.  Many goals were to get more exercise, like run around the block 10 times each evening or to keep track of their exercise to see if they could get in 60 minutes everyday.  Other’s made goals to improve their eating habits.  One 6th grader decided to eat at least 3 vegetables a day.  One  young lady's goal was to only drink one pop a week.  These are good goals for each of us. 
Way to go students!
