HUDSON, TX (KTRE) - State officials helped kick off the Healthy Texas initiative on Tuesday.
Students at Bonner Elementary spent the afternoon learning about activities to make healthier choices. Those included growing produce, adding fresh vegetables in their diet and gardening.
The initiative aims to take research data collected from the Texas A&M University System directly to the public in order to improve the overall health and wellness of future generations.
The Angelina County Texas A&M AgriLife Extension office said the statistics for our region's health has been declining in recent studies. They hope this initiative will begin to turn that around.
