The Florida Department of Health in Polk County (DOH-Polk) recognizes April 25-29, 2016, as Every Kid Healthy™ Week. This is an annual event that celebrates school health and wellness achievements. In celebration of this event, school health nurses from the Florida Department of Health and staff were presented with a proclamation by the Polk County School Board at Tuesday’s meeting. DOH-Polk school health nurses have also partnered with Spook Hill Elementary School to provide activities throughout the week for the students encouraging healthy habits. “It is important for children to eat right and be involved with physical activities,” says Dr. Joy Jackson, director of the DOH- Polk.” One third of children are now considered overweight or obese.”
