Caught You Being Healthy

During the school year, our Healthy Kids Crew members will use a camera to take pictures of people eating healthy items, being active at recess, PE, or class brain breaks, and participating in other healthy activities. They then post the pictures on our "Caught You Being Healthy" wall. Our HKC members will also hand out fun fruit and veggie stickers occasionally as a reward to students that eat all their fruits and vegetables at lunch.

What improvements have you seen at your school?

Students, especially the younger ones, get very excited about being recognized for doing something good, so they all eat more fruits and veggies on days like these when we are trying to catch and recognize people being healthy.

How do you plan to make this Play last during the school year and beyond?

We have had a Healthy Kid Crew for several years now, and we have also done this for a few years, so we have made it a yearly tradition.
