Getting Our Students 2 Say Yes To Healthy Foods

By
Michael Lansdowne,   Creightons Corner Elementary School
Play:
Breakfast For Everyone — First Meal Matters
Topics:

We felt it was important for our students to understand the "Why" behind healthy nutritious foods. We decided to promote healthy eating (fruits & veggies) through crazy costumes, terrific tastings, and silly songs to get our student body excited. Since doing this, more students are aware and willing to try healthier options that they would've tried before. We are a "Leader In Me" school and believe that we can't ask our students to eat healthier if we as a school family aren't willing to lead by example.

How did students and adults work together as a team?

We had meetings and discussed what we could do as a team to get our students excited about healthy foods.

What improvements have you seen at your school?

Students are trying foods that they wouldn't have tried before.

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

This is only the beginning! Our student leadership team will be more involved in the development process & promotion of our healthy eating programs!
