Auburn students promote healthy choices

CONCORD TWP. –Auburn Career Center’s Teaching Professions Pathway students Amber Amato, Rachel Heckman and Sonya Deneen, all of Madison, are working with children in the area to promote healthy lifestyles.

Amato, Heckman and Deneen visited North Elementary School in Madison and spoke with the children about the benefits of eating right and getting 60 minutes of exercise. They played games with the children including car lot and blob, similar to tag. In addition, the children had to determine if food was healthy or unhealthy and place it in the appropriate place on a nutrition chart.

Auburn’s trio took silver in the Family, Career and Community Leaders of America (FCCLA) regional competition in March for their programs in action student body contest. Their contest promotes eating right, being fit and making healthy decisions.

“We chose this project because it allows us to work with children and show them how to prevent obesity or health problems when they get older through exercise and proper nutrition,” said Amato.

In addition to visiting the elementary school, they also attended a Boy Scout troop meeting to promote healthy nutrition. During their visit, they provided them with a healthy snack consisting of oranges, crackers, apple juice and water.

“It’s fun, and we enjoy it. It shows children that we care about them, their future and how they take care of themselves,” said Deneen.

Family, Career and Community Leaders of America is a nonprofit national career and technical student organization that provides personal growth, leadership development, and career preparation opportunities for students in family and consumer sciences education.

Amato, Heckman and Deneen are advancing to the FCCLA state competition in Columbus.

“We are kind of nervous in a way but happy that we made it to the state competition,” said Heckman.
