Awareness Pledge2017-01-06T05:04:35+00:00
  • I, solemnly and sincerely pledge to...
    • Do my best to adhere to the AHA’s (American Heart Association) and WHO’s (World Health Organization) daily recommendations for the maximum amounts of added sugars, which are 12 g. (3 tsp.) for young children, 24 g. (6 tsp.) for women and 36 g. (9 tsp) for men.
    • Read nutrition labels carefully, noting there are over 50 aliases for sugar that may be listed on the ingredients list. If SUGAR (or any of its pseudonyms), is one of the first three ingredients, I will consider a healthier alternative.
    • Reduce the amount of highly processed foods in my diet and the diets of my children and family ­ by purchasing, buying, growing, preparing and eating REAL food for myself and others whenever possible.
    • Eliminate liquid sugar beverages like soda and pre­sweetened drinks and reduce the amounts of juice my family drinks, opting instead for water or unsweetened tea.
    • Treat sugar as a treat or something to be enjoyed occasionally and in small doses. Not as a major ingredient in foods and beverages eaten for breakfast, lunch, dinner or snacks. In other words, eat a well­balanced diet, with all things in moderation ­ or as Michael Pollan says, “Eat real food. Not too much. Mostly plants.”
  • By signing this pledge I agree to help spread awareness on the current global health crisis we now face due to our food supply, where almost 80% of all grocery store items are laced with added sugars and every ten seconds someone in this country dies from a diabetes or food­induced illness. I pledge to try and stem this tide of degradation which has created the first generation of children in the history of the world predicted to have shorter life spans than their parents. I believe that if we can change what we eat, we can literally change the world ­ one child at a time.

  • If we want a healthy future we MUST do a better job at raising healthy kids. It’s ironic how adults will take their time in a restaurant, searching for the healthiest options, and then casually order the absolute worst possible choice for their children from the kids menu. As our most important and precious commodity, shouldn’t our children be getting the very best food? If we could get rid of “kid food” vs “adult food” and focus on REAL FOOD instead, we’d be making a good start towards eradicating childhood obesity, epidemic numbers of T2 diabetes and lifestyle related chronic disease. There's no time like the present to start reinforcing our future with generations of healthy kids! #healthykids #healthyworld #forkdisease #nourishtoflourish #TheNoblePathFoundation #eatREALfood

  • "It’s easy to feel like you’re failing at life when the only snap shots you get of other people are positive ones. But it’s so important to remember that you’re only seeing a small piece of the entire picture of a person’s life - pieces that are often filtered or embellished, or sometimes completely falsified, to paint the appearance that everything is okay. But these people you’re comparing yourself to who seem to have their life together, who are living enviable lives and have smiling photos and celebratory status updates and blog posts showcasing their adventures - their lives are not as easy or perfect as they might seem. Yes, there may be moments of happiness and laughter and accomplishment, but there are also moments of heartbreak and loss and loneliness. There are days when they feel painfully inadequate or invisible or defeated. Days when they’re drowning in shame or self-doubt or fear. They aren’t the paragons of success and happiness that you’ve built them up to be. Because the...

There are days when they feel painfully inadequate or invisible or defeated. Days when they’re drowning in shame or self-doubt or fear. They aren’t the paragons of success and happiness that you’ve built them up to be.

Because the truth is that NO ONE has everything figured out. No one’s life is easy and without struggle. It’s human and it’s normal. And it’s OKAY. It’s okay to struggle. It’s okay to feel lost and unsure and overwhelmed. It’s okay to not have it together every minute of every day. It’s okay to be exactly where you are and feel all the things you feel. You don’t have to have all the answers or do things perfectly. You just have to show up and try. You have to trust that you can struggle and lose your way and still end up where you need and want to be. That you can not have it together and still live a meaningful and accomplished life." — Daniell Koepke

  • If you don't make time to feed your wellness, you will be forced to make time for your illness. With every bite you are either feeding disease or fighting it. Please choose wisely. Your life literally depends on it. #forkdisease #nourishtoflourish #preventionoverpills #givekidsachance #eatrealfood #TheNoblePathFoundation

As part of their annual semester long program on nutrition, OCASA has various speakers come and share their knowledge on food, nutrition and health.

OCASA also participates in the Harvest of the Month Nutrition Education Program through the Orange County Department of Education. It highlights fresh, seasonal, California fruits and vegetables and students not only get to taste each food item, but also learn how and where it is grown. Their classroom curriculum covers topics such as the dangers of added sugars, education on cholesterol, how to make a healthy snacks, how farming affects animals, and many other important topics, while keeping the learning fun and informative. 
_____________________________________________

In the area of arts, their music teacher John Schutza taught students three original songs on nutrition, produced a play called “Adventures of Nutrition” and did visual art games which included drawing still-lifes of healthy foods, writing poems and creating dances promoting better health. 
_____________________________________________

We applaud OCASA’s wide-ranging and comprehensive approach to health and wellness for their students’ bodies and are pleased and honored to have presented this award to OCASA with principal Doreen Fioterro accepting on their behalf.
