NDSU 4-H Club: Fighting Childhood Obesity Together
In recognition of National Childhood Obesity Awareness Month, 4-H has recognized 24 North Dakota 4-H clubs for their dedication to healthy food choices and regular exercise. With the help of the North Dakota State University Extension Service, these clubs were awarded recognition and a small prize for emulating and promoting healthy lifestyles. NDSU Extension teaches the children about preparing healthy recipes through hands on activities. Some clubs do food drives, while others bake items to hand out in their community. The slogan “Eat Smart. Play Hard.” has been impactful with these North Dakota clubs since NDSU Extension first implemented it back in 2005, and continues to be a driving force in the 4-H chapter.
