Nutrition Trivia at Lunchtime

We want to help our students learn as much about good nutrition as possible, so we are running nutritional trivia games at lunchtime to help them learn about nutrients in food, serving sizes, portions, calories, and reading labels. Our FUTP 60 student Ambassadors run this during all three lunches so all students in the school have a chance to participate. We have run this program for the month of November and will run it again for one month in the spring.

What improvements have you seen at your school?

Students are making healthier choices for meals and snacks, and they are taking information home and sharing with families.

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

Our biggest challenge for our nutritional trivia is that there is not enough time each lunch period for all the kids who would like to participate to have a chance to participate, so we will offer this activity more often.

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

We are going to offer the nutrition trivia one month per quarter instead of one month each semester.
