Fruits and Veggies vs Junk Food Tug-o-War Contest
- Diane Driver, H R Mccall Elem School
- Student Leadership
Eleven of our FUTP 60 Student Ambassadors acted out a skit for the entire school. Roles included various healthy foods and some favorite junk foods. Students were taught the nutritional and caloric content of the various food items. After boasting about which was better,they challenged each other to a tug-o-war contest. The Healthy Foods were victorious over the junk foods, went to the assistance of the junk foods as they weakened and fell on the floor during the contest, and then shared with them ways they could be stronger and feel better like they did. At the end of the skit, the Ambassadors answered questions from the students and then led them in an exercise class. An educational and fun time was had by all!
