Every Wednesday in room E6 from 8:30 A.M to 10:00 A.M there is a class being held for parents called “Healthy Families.” The classes are about balanced eating and they give parents ideas of how to make sure their child’s diet is healthy and balanced. Information like how many fruit vegetables to eat a day and the recommended amount of daily calories is included in the classes. The classes are held by Susy Barrola, who works for the Expanded Food and Nutrition Education program at the Texas A&M AgriLife Extension. Health is very important, especially to kids at this age who are growing. The nurse here at Lincoln middle school says: “your body is growing right now, you need a balanced diet.” Having a balanced diet keeps kids, and especially athletes and this age strong the nurse also said,”if you don’t keep your muscles strong your apt to get hurt.”

Not very many kids are aware of the Healthy Family classes and when we informed Kimberly Chavez, an 8th grader she said ” I think the classes are important for parents to attend, because they make and buy the food so its good to know whats good for them.” and Jonathan Corona said “I did not know about the classes, but I think its a good idea” The classes here at Lincoln are important and helpful so parents who can try and make it to a few classes to make sure their child has a healthy diet.
