Healthy Lunch Check

There is a booth in our lunchroom on random days to check if kids are eating healthy. The people who did bring healthy lunches on that day were entered to win a gift card to Subway and Academy Sporting Goods.

What challenges did you face and how did you overcome them?

Some of the challenges that we faced were that some students did not want to participate in the activity. We offered a chance to win a gift card, and gave small prizes like the FUTP 60 bracelets and other healthy snacks for participating.

How did you accomplish your goals?

We could tell we had accomplished our goals when we saw over half of the school was signing every week during the lunch checks. Some purchased more salads from the cafeteria on lunch check days.

How did students and adults work together as a team?

Some of the administrators helped push students to sign up for the event when the lines look low.
