Virginia Governor Tim Kaine fields some tough questions from elementary students at Claremont Immersion School in Arlington, Va. Kaine was at the school to praise its nutrition and physical activity programs.
Hundreds of energetic children zip around the gymnasium at Claremont Elementary School in Arlington, Va.
Two of the children belong to Marna Louis, who is impressed by the quality of the food served at Claremont. "They've really increased the number of fresh fruits and vegetables that they offer," said Louis, "as opposed to canned things."
Governor Tim Kaine visited the school to bestow his Nutrition and Physical Activity Gold Star Award, an honor only 13 other schools in the Commonwealth have received. Kaine encouraged students to eat breakfast every morning, drink at least 64 ounces of water a day, and to make sure they go outside.
"Go outside and what?" Kaine asked the students. "Play!" They shouted back in unison.
Governor Kaine then joined the students for their daily dance routine, stepping and waving his arms to the beat.
