Access to Healthy Foods

In collaboration with adjoining high school broadcasting and technology assistant students, the Student Wellness Team members created and filmed a commercial advertising the importance of eating fruits. Throughout the commercial, students highlighted examples of fruits, discussed their healthy benefits to the body, and listed various essential nutrients found in common fruits such as apples, bananas, and oranges. The commercial was broadcast throughout the school to students and staff (an audience of about 215 individuals).

How did students and adults work together as a team?

Adult Wellness Team members suggested the idea of a commercial to the student members of our Wellness Team as a means of informing others of the importance of eating fruits. Students then took the idea and created their own dialogue and actions. Teachers from our school collaborated with high school teachers and arranged the film location and provided assistance with filming and editing (all completed by high school students).
