Crunch Out Knox County teaches 4th grade students in Knox County Schools about making healthy food choices and getting physical activity every day. Information about 5-2-1-0 is shared and reviewed throughout the six-week fall program. Healthy nutrition and physical activity are believed to be the two most important contributors in stopping the recent increase in childhood obesity across the country. Local statistics reveal that almost one-third of Knox County children are overweight or obese. This is not a weight-loss program, it is a nutrition and physical education wellness program. Education and practice are the best way to create healthy habits.
