From October 2012 - Everyone is clamoring for DATA. Here is a brief report on the data from our survey of secondary school students.
However, the data paints a very complex, divided picture. Half of our students are getting 7 or less hours of sleep a night. Not good. Half of our students are drinking SSBs (sugar sweetened beverages) every day. Not good. Half of our students are physically active for 60 minutes or more at least 5 days a week. Good, but what about the other half?
Strolling the halls of a high school might confirm that students are either fit or fat, with few in between.
The author is right - who worried about soda in schools and who knew what "screen time" was just a decade ago? The conversation has changed - in a good way. Let's keep it up.
