Healthy eating and fitness at home and school

This fun, food-themed day is more than just cheese and salsa. With the rise in childhood obesity, teachers and families can encourage healthy nutrition and fitness habits at home and in the classroom. Cooking together connects math with literacy skills, science, and more. On Taco Tuesday create your own healthy tacos and then share the recipes and photos of your creations on The Children’s Center Facebook page or post to Twitter using the hashtag #WOYCTacoTues.

For more fun ideas on how to incorporate Taco Tuesday into your classroom activities, check out how one NAEYC-accredited center prepared for the day!
