HER PLATFORM
Physical Activity & Nutrition... 
I plan to speak to children about the importance of being physically active to stay healthy and also how a well-balanced diet plays a huge role in your health.

Getting the recommended daily nutrients from each of the basic food groups is very important to everyone, especially growing children. One of the food groups I focus on a lot is the dairy group. In a child’s young life it is very important to get the recommended three dairy products a day in order to build strong bones while they’re growing into teenagers and adults. I stress this very important issue to children I speak to and try to get them to understand why dairy calcium is important. I’ve also been working with the Midwest Dairy Association and the ‘Got Milk?’ campaign to help promote the importance of dairy even further.

I plan to encourage children to engage in physical activity and to learn about proper nutrition as well—it’s all part of a healthy lifestyle. I will do this by going to schools throughout Minnesota and showing a presentation that I’m working on that is designed to encourage them to take an active role in their health. Thewww.4girls.gov program will help me to target the health issues that today’s young girls are experiencing as far as nutrition, health, and puberty.
