Tony Allen to Educate Students About Making Healthy Choices

Celtics guard Tony Allen, members of the Celtics Dancers, WEEI and The Boston Celtics Radio Network are teaming up with the WIC (Women, Infants and Children) Nutrition Program to teach students the benefits of healthy living and making healthy choices. The program helps educate children and their families about the importance of good nutrition and physical activity.

On Thursday, April 1st, from 9 a.m. - 10 a.m. Allen and members of the Celtics Dancers will speak with children at the Winthrop School in Dorchester about staying active and the benefits of leading a healthy life.

WIC is a nutrition program in the Massachusetts Department of Public Health that provides nutrition and health education, free nutritious food and access to health care to low- to moderate-income pregnant women, infants and children under five. WIC children enter school "ready to learn" and have better cognitive performance.
