{Dannon Danimals} RALLY FOR RECESS, Plus 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!

My views on this program:
I think that this is a VERY good idea/contest.  I have 7 children and it's tough to get them off the computer and get outside.  Dad and I have finally broke down and cut off any computer, unless it's for homework, and get them to do other things.
Luckily, the school district we are in is a AAA school, top 10 districts in the USA.  So, we are able to get more things for the kids without a struggle.  2 years ago when the recesses were "cut out" of the schools, our school made some changes.  To add the recesses that are state required, the school district made going to school early and get out later.  An added bonus for the children in elementary school, they get an early dismissal once every month, same as middle school.  The high school, gets an early dismissal every Thursday.

Now for the giveaway!
To help get your kid/kids to get outside this fall, Dannon will be giving away a Branded Soccer ball with a Branded drawstring bag to ONE (1) lucky family!  YAY!  How fun is that?
