Princeton Day School Announces Health and Wellness Week, 1/17-1/20

 Princeton Day School is committed to encouraging healthy choices on and off campus, and is pleased to announce the school’s first-ever nutrition-focused Health and Wellness Week, taking place from January 17th through January 20th. Featuring special events and guest speakers, this week is the culmination of the combined efforts of the school administration, division heads, Parents Association, Student Services Team, FLIK Dining Services (who provide all food on campus and are renowned for their emphasis on fresh, local, and healthy choices), and the Athletics Department.

Here are the events scheduled for Health and Wellness Week:

 

On January 17th, representatives from our FLIK Dining, including Chef Brian Mochnal, will be discussing nutrition for our youngest students at a coffee for Lower School parents entitled “Helping your Child Make Better Eating Choices.”

 

On Wednesday, January 18th, the first Parents Association meeting of the year will feature a hands-on presentation by PDS Coach and Athletic Performance Coach Darius Young and Tennis Coach Ed Tseng focusing on fitness and nutritional tips to keep everyone in the family healthy both physically and mentally.

 

On Thursday, January 19th, Susan Cooper, Nutritionist for FLIK services and Chef Brian Mochnal will discuss nutrition for our pre-teens at a coffee in the Middle School Library for Middle School parents entitled “Nutritional Choices and the Impact on Performance in the Classroom and Fields.” On Thursday evening, at 7:00 pm, Victoria Rosenfeld, Sports Nutritionist at Princeton University, will be presenting a talk for parents titled “Fueling and Nutrition for Student Athletes.” This event will take place in the McAneny Theater on campus.

 

On Friday, January 20th, there will be a presentation to the 7th and 8th grade students on nutritious eating and performance-based foods. And finally at 12:30 on Friday, Victoria Rosenfeld will present a luncheon talk for all student athletes titled “”Performance Nutrition for the High School Athlete”

 

With programming for students and parents alike, our hope is that the events of Princeton Day School’s Health and Wellness Week will raise the importance of making smart and nutritious choices for healthy living.
