Johnson Ahead of the Health Curve

Our very own Coach Brandon works with the UIC Partnership for Health Promotion to provide informative and interactive health & nutrition workshops for all our 3rd-5th grade teams. But at Johnson, what Brandon didn’t know Justin and Derek were more than happy to answer for him!
Greg was surprised to learn the amounts of “hidden sugar” in the everyday foods he eats (or at least used to eat…). For example, there are over 9 teaspoons of sugar in 1 Coke. That means after drinking 1 can of soda you have already gone over your daily recommended sugar intake! After studying a few nutrition labels, we all learned that if you can’t pronounce an ingredient you probably shouldn’t eat it!
