The Herald Sun: Kids, parents get ready for fit and healthy school year

DURHAM -- Durham kids and their parents learned about wellness and healthy eating, just in time for back to school. At an event provided by Duke Children’s Healthy Lifestyles and Kohl’s Bull City Fit on Aug. 18, roughly 80 participants learned tips for packing healthy school lunches and staying fit.

Duke physical therapy students, Duke Children’s health care providers and local Kohl’s associates set up stations at Edison Johnson Recreation Center and showed kids and parents how to make such healthy treats as banana pops and crunchy kale chips. Families visiting each station earned a backpack full of recipes, lunch boxes, water bottles and athletic gear to take home.
