A fun-filled nutrition and physical activity guide designed by the Health Education Council!
Are you struggling to make a difference in the nutrition and exercise habits of California students? Then let the games begin! The Nutrition Decathlon Tool Kit combines physical activity with nutrition education, providing games, activities, and taste-testing opportunities that focus on fruits and vegetables. As an added bonus, the activities are linked to the California State Content Standards, reinforcing classroom learning.
The kit includes ten lively activity stations, such as Coconut Bowling, Carrot Hop, Berry Relay, and Citrus Hike. Students gain access to the activities by answering nutrition-related questions at the Food for Thought station. Rotating from activity to activity, students end at a taste-testing booth where they enjoy samples of delicious fruits and vegetables.
The kit includes: a complete list of materials needed, setup and layout guidelines, staffing suggestions, and step-by-step activity directions. You'll also find creative ideas for involving older student volunteers.
