St. David Roaring Runners Prepare for Spring Running Season

Grade 2 St. David Catholic Elementary student, Emily Walsh, prepares a banana, pineapple, French Toast kabob

March 25, 2013 - The St. David Catholic Elementary School Roaring Runners cooking club is anxiously awaiting the beginning of the spring running season. While they wait for the snow to melt they are learning more about fuelling their bodies with healthy foods. As they wait for the seasons to change, the students participate in an after school cooking club. The students learn how to prepare a variety of healthy meals, learn about nutrition and enjoy the meals that they make together. This week students were hard at work making oatmeal muffin cups and banana French toast kabobs.

According to Ontario Ministry of Education "schools play an important role in teaching students healthy eating habits and reinforcing those lessons through school practices. Research shows that good health is a prerequisite for good learning. The government passed the Healthy Food for Healthy Schools Act in April 2008."

As a staff, St. David School works in partnership with Better Beginnings Better Futures, Breakfast Clubs of Canada and Holy Trinity Men's Club to create an "environment where the healthiest choices are the easiest choices for students to make". The school provides opportunities that reinforces the knowledge and attitudes regarding healthy eating developed through the Ontario curriculum.
