Changing your lifestyle for the better can be a daunting task, but don’t worry; we have Healthy Kids Challenge curriculum to help you along the way!
Health Fair or Parent Night (work sites, community events or schools)
Set up display tables of the 5 MyPlate food groups and active play. Provide participants teaching cards and point out the healthy messages as you lead them through the table displays. (See our Explore MyPlate event guide for details.)
Classroom or Afterschool Kids Activities
Choose a theme each week during the month (Grains, Fruits & Veggies, Dairy, Protein and Active Play). Use the cards for bulletin board ideas, weekly kids challenges and quick healthy messages during breaks. Also a great asset for use with our Balance My Day™ nutrition curriculum!
Health Departments and Clinics
Place teaching cards in waiting and exam rooms and use for nutrition education opportunities.
