Cleveland Browns’ Braylon Edwards promotes healthy habits

COLUMBUS — Students in the Cleveland Metropolitan School District recently played host to a new gym teacher for a day, Braylon Edwards, wide receiver for the Cleveland Browns.

The visit was the result of a partnership, between the American Dairy Association Mideast and the Cleveland Browns, that works to educate kids on healthy eating, including three servings of dairy a day and physical activity.

Edwards visited the Warner Girls Leadership Academy, where he led the students through a 30-minute gym class. He also stressed the importance of being active and eating a well-balanced diet.

Team

“We teamed with the Browns to teach children that good nutrition, including enjoying three servings of milk, cheese and yogurt each day, coupled with physical activity is a winning combination for healthy lifestyles that last a lifetime,” said Jenny Hubble, vice president of communications for American Dairy Association Mideast.

Students had the opportunity to have photos taken with Edwards during the visit. Promotional posters incorporating these pictures will be created to educate other kids about the importance of a healthy lifestyle.

Partnership

The partnership with the Cleveland Browns is a part of a larger collaboration between the 3-A-Day™ of Dairy nutrition marketing campaign and the National Football League. Locally, American Dairy Association Mideast is teaming with the Cleveland Browns to reach kids through school cafeteria promotions, public relations activities and retail promotions.
