Learning to live a healthier lifestyle

Getting a good amount of sleep and eating a balanced diet seemed important to most of the students. Also, making sure a meal has a lot of color on the plate with a focus on vegetables was expressed.

"I don't eat as much bacon anymore," said Drew Bailey, a student in Tamar's health class. "I go for whole grain everything bagels now."

Carli Aragosa said she focuses more on portion control now when she eats. Students also said it was easier to change their eating habits than they thought it would be.

"We have come a long way in terms of them having a really good knowledge base of what is healthy in terms of nutrition and fitness," said Tamar. "I think when you read about inactivity and sedentary lifestyles, I think that we have a really good base of active kids. At least they appreciate how important it is.""
