It’s been a notable observation for decades that teenagers may have differing music tastes to older generations, as popular music tends to be whatever is in the charts at the time. If you have kids who only listen to current releases, you’ve probably said the same yourself, but you were probably much the same when you were their age! Whatever era you grew up in, there would have been the passing fads and then the real, quality music that lasts beyond fashion and stands the test of time. How can you get your kids to listen to classic bands and singers and get them to find out what they’ve been missing?

Get your kids to eat more veggies? Yes, with a school grant from Action for Healthy Kids!

Parents can be a formidable force for change in schools, especially when it comes to starting health and wellness programs. Ensuring that our kids are eating healthier foods, learning about nutrition, and being more physically active in school not only sets them up to learn lifelong healthy habits but, according to a growing body of research, it helps them be better prepared to focus and learn in class. Studies also show when parents are involved in a child’s education, their children demonstrate higher academic achievement, better attendance, better social skills, better-eating habits, increased physical activity and less emotional distress.Yet, despite wanting to do what’s best for students’ health, many schools lack the necessary resources to implement health and wellness practices that help students eat better and stay physically active. That’s why Action for Healthy Kids (AFHK) has announced a new Parents for Healthy Kids grant just for parents for the 2018-2019 school year. The grants, which are provided through funding from ALDI, are designed for parents, caregivers and parent-groups (e.g. PTAs, PTOs) to lead school-based physical activity and nutrition initiatives and to engage more parents and family members in student and family health.
