MCKINNEY INDEPENDENT SCHOOL DISTRICT SAVES 5,300 POUNDS OF SUGAR!

Through a collaboration between ADA’s School Walk and Food N’ Me, McKinney ISD’s elementary schools took part in a successful Sugar Challenge last week.  Participating students abstained from drinking 5,300 pounds of sugar* by agreeing to forgo soda and sugary drinks for one week.  That amount is equal to a savings of $48,000 by not buying these drinks!

Your school or district can pre-register to participate in the Food N’ Me program to educate children about sugar and healthy eating.  Send an email info@foodnme.com. Or if in North Texas contact Sandy Peters, SPeters@diabetes.org.

*Based on the data collected from students, McKinney Elementary schools estimated 5,300 pounds of sugar was not consumed.
