Rally for Recess: Danimals Giveaway!


In the past twenty years, children have lost an average of 8 hours of recess a week, and some schools no longer provide play time for students. According to the American Academy of Pediatricians, the lack of play time is a national crisis leading to a growing epidemic: childhood obesity.

Rally for Recess is a national initiative designed to create healthy competition, pitting school against school. Five schools have the opportunity to win new playground equipment and an all-day recess celebration!


Danimals is committed to childhood health and wellness, which starts with good nutrition and an active lifestyle. Through February 8, 2012, purchasers can find codes on Danimals packaging to enter and register. The top school in each of five categories with the most codes registered wins!


For more information, visit: RallyforRecess.com



When I think about recess going it away it makes me feel sick to my stomach.  I simply can't fathom the ramifications of taking away physical activity from our children's day.   Children NEED PLAY!  Let's work hard to make sure recess is not something of the past!


To celebrate Rally for Recess, one lucky RBM reader will receive a 6 pack of Danimals Yogurt! Thanks so much to the sponsor and here is how to enter...
