Blue Zones Project® is a community-led well-being initiative designed to make healthy choices easier in Fort Worth through permanent changes to environment, policy, and social networks. When our entire community participates – from worksites and schools to restaurants and grocery stores – the small changes add up to huge benefits for all of us: lowered healthcare costs, improved productivity, and ultimately, a higher quality of life.
Greenfield Elementary is proud to announce that we have taken the Blue Zones Project School Pledge and have become a Blue Zones Project Approved™ school! By implementing healthy, evidence-based best practices, we hope to optimize our school environment to better promote physical, social, and emotional health.
****As a Blue Zones school, we are asking for your help when celebrating birthdays. We know that everyone loves cupcakes, however in our efforts to promote a healthy lifestyle we are asking that you consider an alternative such as pencils, stickers, or something similar.
We also ask that you consider healthy choices when packing a lunch for school and eliminate sodas and other sugar-filled drinks. ****
