Punishing children by taking away recess or physical education classes reduces their already-scarce opportunities for physical activity. Recess functions successfully as an established school-based activity and should be carefully considered as part of any school health and wellness policy. Schools strive to meet student needs and provide them with the tools and opportunities to succeed. This includes the promotion of physical activity and healthy eating through policies, practices and supportive environments. To learn more, download the Recess Rocks! resource.
