Do you remember what recess was like when you were young? Do you remember what you used to play? It felt so good to get out of the classroom, stretch your legs, run off some energy, and just have time to have fun being a kid.
It’s disheartening to hear that recess time is being cut in schools across the country. Many schools are doing this as a result of lack of resources. This is alarming due to the nationwide issue of obesity we presently have. It is recommended that children receive 60 minutes of mild to strenuous activity each day. Removing recess or reducing the amount of time children have for recess obviously does not help to address or solve the obesity issue.Dannon Danimals, makers of the healthy on-the-go dairy drinks and low-fat yogurts, recognizes the importance of having an active lifestyle in order to maintain good health. Dannon Danimals is launching a nationwide campaign called “Rally for Recess”. “Rally for Recess” involves healthy competition among schools. Five lucky schools will win new playground equipment and an all-day recess celebration! Special codes can be found on Danimals packaging through February 8, 2012. Purchasers may use these codes to register and enter to win. The top five schools with the most codes registered in each of the categories will win.
