RGCCISD News Release
The 5-A-Day promotion
encouragcs the consumption of five
or more servings of fruits and
vegetables daily to reduce the risk
of cancer and other chronic diseases.
Rio Grande City CISD strongly
supports this proactive nutrition
education campaign. It encouragcs
healthier eating to prevent cancer

students, it is particularly important
to teach the importance of fruits and
vegetables in their lives now so
they can begin practicing healthy
eaiing habits at home and at school.
A week full of fun and educational
activities all encourage participants
to include five servings of fruit and
vegetables in their daily meals.
"5-A-Day" gives students a
reason and a way to take an
important first step toward
improving their health. Hopefully,
students will see how simple it is
to eat their 5-A-Day for one day,
then through one week and
eveitually for life. Nutritional
education is critical to the
development of lifelong, healthful
eating habits in school age children
and adolescents. This program is an
excellent chance to teach children to
begin practicing healthier eating
