We started our Healthy Eating Play with nutrition lessons led by our P.E. teacher Mr. D. He really emphasized the food groups. He showed a video first. Then the students participated in a contest where they created "bumper stickers" advertising the food groups. We followed this by having an assembly where we did a food group relay where the students were divided into teams and had to grab a food from the specific food group and run it back to their line. Then we ended this Play with a presentation from Maggie Stiles, Miss Stock Show Rodeo for regional agriculture. She is majoring in dairy production and gave an excellent PowerPoint on dairy production and the nutritional value. The presentation was for grade 3-5. Two snack attack packs were given out as prizes to students. These snack packs included dairy such as yogurt and cheese sticks, along with other healthy fruits and vegetables.
