Willowbrook Publc School in Thornhil,l Ontario is working hard to keep fit and healthy while raising money for needy students in Libore, Niger, Africa. In order to stay fit, students are running in the gym twice a week before school begins at 8:30 am. These energetic and committed kids are also trying to get their peers to make healthier food choices by selling healthy snacks that have been donated by local grocery stores. In October, Longo’s donated 100 apples which were sold at the school during recess. The money raised was donated to Pencils 4 Kids to support their new library and educational programs. Bravo to the staff and students at Willowbrook. Healthy snacks will continue to be sold at the school.

The Apps for Healthy Kids competition is part of First Lady Michelle Obama’s Let’s Move campaign to end childhood obesity within a generation. The competition challenges software developers, game designers, students and other innovators to develop fun and engaging software tools and games to urge children, especially “tweens” (children ages 9-12) – directly or through their parents – to eat better and be more physically active. "Food Hero," is a game that encourages kids to make more nutritious food choices and become more physically active. Eating healthy balanced meals every day helps you build strength. The goal of the game is to become a Food Hero by eating right and completing a set of running, biking and swimming challenges. USDA Photo 10di1506-112 by Bob Nichols.
