Traverse City Central Physical Education Class Learns from Registered Dietitian
The Traverse City Central health and P.E. class welcomed a registered dietitian to their class.
It was part of a lesson promoting a healthy lifestyle.
Tara Rybicki spoke to students about eating healthy, meal planning and the importance of knowing what they are putting their bodies on Wednesday.
“I think taking a proactive approach is so incredibly important and starting as young possible with getting this messaging. I really think the feeling it really kicks in with the kids in the class really need to know that and an actual person from somebody who works as a dietician and works around with people like this and helps them with things. Just makes it really more important,” Tara said.
Tara also added kids who start healthy eating habits early have a considerably lower risk of developing diabetes in the future.
