Not only is eating the right kinds of food important, but so is exercise, said Meg Hendy, school nurse at Broad River Elementary School.
As lifestyles have increasingly become less physical, more and more people battle expanding waistlines.
"Back in the '40s, '50s and '60s when people walked to school every day, eating bacon and eggs for breakfast wasn't necessarily a bad thing," Hendy said.

To help get kids moving, Hendy and the school staff initiated an early morning exercise program.
"Just adding an extra 30 minutes of exercise a day can help lower the cholesterol in students and help them to lose weight," she said."Anybody who has an increased intake of saturated fats can have high cholesterol, which causes the plaque that causes coronary and artery problems."
All of the children who participated in the exercise program reduced their cholesterol levels.
Even though all of the children at Broad River Elementary School have an opportunity to play each day during recess, there is only one structured physical education class per week, Hendy said.

The Beaufort Gazette: State law allows students to medicate themselves

But Meg Hendy, a nurse at Okatie Elementary School, said she doesn't like the law.
The school now can allow students to carry their medication if it's absolutely necessary.The new law could open the door to more students doing so, and that could be dangerous.
For example, Hendy said, an elementary school child easily could forget an inhaler on the playground and another student could pick it up and try it.Some middle school students use inhalers as a recreational drug, she said.
