We decided to get the word out to eat healthy at all 3 meals and snacks too! We took it to our coaches also that we eat healthy for after school breaks when we are playing sports. We want to get into a habit of eating healthy and being active as much as we can.

How did students and adults work together as a team?

It was pretty easy because we meet together and talk about this and how we will do this in school. Then our Program Advisor sits down with us and helps us out. We all go on the computers once a month and do updates in the lab.

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

We had to learn to work together without fighting. We also had to find a time that we all could meet. And we needed to make sure the lab was open.

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

Ever since we started we have kept this program up. We meet all the time and we do updates and talk about what we can do to talk to others about staying healthy and eating right.
