Longwood students wrap up program to help fight childhood obesity
A group of Bronx sixth-graders who participated in a four-week program to help fight childhood obesity says it really helped. Students in Longwood recently finished the Fit Now Campaign where they learned about nutrition and how to eat healthy. During the program, students were given pedometers to see how far they walked each day and kept a daily journal of their progress. Most of the students say they will continue their healthy habits even though the program is over.
