KickOff for FUTP 60

We had our kickoff during lunch periods to explain FUTP 60, do physical activities related to all the food groups and had a healthy demonstration of tofu vegetable stir fry.

How did students and adults work together as a team?

We planned the kick off with teachers, Food Service Director for the Granville Ex. School District and FUTP 60 Student Ambassadors

How did you accomplish your goals?

We introduced FUTP 60 using our video developed at Bengals Stadium during ACE period (guided study hall for whole school). We had a tofu stir fry demonstration w/Chef Jon Harbaugh, planned fun games with each food group and rolled out all our FUTP 60 programs and did a 1 minute step exercise (Min. to Win It).

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

Getting the fun Min. to Win it games for each food group and exercise planned. We played "Face the Cucumber"--putting it on students' heads and they work it into their mouth w/o touching it, thread the noodles on the spaghetti for grain, milk drinking race, running in place for a min. to see who could get most steps in, and how many times students could flip their water bottle successfully in 1 min.
