HEALTHY PALS: BETTER NUTRITION, BETTER LIFE
Through my experience with the Honors College at East Carolina University, I have been able to work on different projects such as sexual assault and food deserts. With the help of certain resources, such as Designing Your Life, I was able to find a project I thoroughly enjoyed that made an impact in the local community. Health is the main part of our day to day lives. In order to keep in good health, we must eat right. A team of current Honors College members and I designed a group known as “Healthy Pals” in which we provided education to elementary-aged children about the dangers of unhealthy eating and described alternative options to the junk food they eat. We measured our successes through pre- and post-tests as well as tracking their knowledge through fun and informative curriculum. We concluded that by doing this, the majority of the children grew knowledge but due to limitations, the study results were not considered significant.
