EASY at School

Healthy students are better learners!

Stronger hearts and sharper minds means students are set up for more success at school. That’s something we can all get behind!


The importance of EASY

Did you know that healthy habits today help reduce kids’ risk of heart disease and stroke later in life? That’s why it’s so important for students to practice the EASY healthy habits every day.

E

Between the ages of 6 and 12, kids develop eating habits that may carry into adulthood.

A

Kids who are active a minimum of 60 minutes daily are more likely to become healthy, active adults.

S

Children should spend most of their free time away from televisions and technology, being active to keep their heart and brain healthy.

Y

Half your body (including your heart and brain) is made of water so make sure they drink enough to fuel it.


Protecting students’ heart and brain health has never been so EASY!

Last year, we started teaching EASY healthy habits in kick-off assemblies across Canada.

This year, we’re encouraging kids to count and share their daily healthy habit streak digitally.

Here’s how it works:

  1. Students pick the healthy habit they want to practice when they register at jumpropeforheart.ca
  2. Every day the student does their healthy habit, they can login to count their streak.
  3. Your online school page will total the number of days that participating students have counted towards each EASY healthy habit.
