Increased Health Knowledge
Exposure to the New Balance Foundation Health & Wellness Program helps students thrive in another area that may contribute to school success and life chances: health knowledge and behavior. The New Balance Foundation Health & Wellness Program makes a significant difference in students' health knowledge and behaviors, as measured by pre- and post-tests in an annual student survey. Grade 4 and 5 students demonstrated improved health behavior scores in the areas of nutrition efficacy, unhealthy nutrition, and screen time.
