Kindergarten-through-sixth-grade students at Fresno Unified’s Del Mar Elementary School were the audience for a special drama Thursday that taught the importance of getting exercise, eating fruits and vegetables, and limiting screen time on cellular devices, computers and televisions.
Two performances of “The Best Me” were performed at the campus by Kaiser Permanente’s Educational Theater Program. The performers utilize comedy, music, dance and audience participation to deliver the message.
Having a healthy lifestyle is a key challenge for Fresno residents. Obesity and diabetes are major health problems afflicting the area. Teaching students how to eat well and get enough exercise is a focus of Fresno schools.
