Go-Slow-Whoa Chart

Alysia Rygh,   Hill Elementary School
Go-Slow-Whoa Chart
Students brought in nutrition labels in order to make our Go-Slow-Whoa Chart. This was a school-wide project that highlights nutrition, teaches students how to read nutrition labels, helps students to learn what they are eating (ingredients), and promotes healthier eating choices. These become household discussions, which promote healthier habits beyond just our students. Although this project is simple and student driven, it has had a huge impact on the awareness and importance of knowing how to properly and effectively Fuel Up our bodies#FUTP60

What improvements have you seen at your school?

Students are making more thoughtful eating choices. They have set goals and many choose to drink water more than they ever have. They also talk about nutrition with their families.

How did students and adults work together as a team?

This project has not only made an impact on our students at school, but it has extended to their homes as well. Teachers, parents, and students have talks on a regular basis about what we are choosing to eat.

How did you accomplish your goals?

Students have more of an awareness about the importance of properly fueling their body, not just when they’re young, but for a lifetime.
