FUTP 60 Coloring Contest
Any student in the school had the option to participate in a coloring contest that promoted healthy eating. About half of the students participated in the contest. The optional coloring pages included fruits and vegetable, dairy products, grains, etc. The students learned what foods made a healthy meal while having fun coloring. All the pictures were judged by other students and the top 3 pictures from each class were chosen as winners. They were displayed on a poster in the gym for all to view.

How did you accomplish your goals?

We accomplished our goal by helping kids understand that the choices they make regarding food directly affect their play and success in school. The pictures helped the kids understand healthy choices.
