A Healthier You... 

 Increase Fruits and Vegetables:Only 20% of high school students in our country report eating five servings of fruits and vegetables every day.  It takes planning and trial and error to increase the fresh fruits and veggies your family eats, but you will see many benefits over time.

Eat Real Food: Over the past 30 years, the rates of childhood obesity have been increasing steadily.  We have the opportunity to lower the amount of junk food our families are eating by increasing the amount of healthful, homemade meals and healthy snacks they consume.

Drop Liquid Calories:  Today, we are drinking more sugary beverages than ever before.  Most of these sugary beverages are consumed at home, so we as parents and as caregivers can have a direct impact on decreasing the amount of empty calories our families are consuming from these sweet drinks.

 

 Wellness Mission Statement "Encourage best health practices for staff and students at Colleton County High School."

 

KERMIT TREVOR HUDSON MEMORIAL
Celebrate, Be Thankful...Make a difference!
