Through Food Power Classroom Activities, the Food Power Adventure and
the Food Power Digest, elementary school
students learn the importance of healthy food choices and regular
physical activity. As students travel the path food takes from the
farmer’s field to the sports field, they learn where the food they
eat comes from and how it gives them the energy to grow and play.
Food Power Young Adventure
As an integral compliment to the Food Power curriculum, Young
Adventure targets early childhood through kindergarten aged
students. The program is titled “Healthily Ever After”. Using
nursery rhyme puppet characters and music, students are introduced
to eating a variety of foods, being physically active, and washing
hands to kill germs. A parent digest with family cooking ideas,
games, and resources is sent home to reinforce learning concepts.
Food Power Round Up
Round Up offers an enrichment option to the Food Power curriculum.
Designed as a traveling nutrition assembly performance for grades
2nd to 4th, the program uses puppetry, music, and audience
participation learning. Content information helps support students
in making positive food and physical activity choices. Classroom
activity handouts for teachers follow up are provided.
Jump into Action
Jump Into Action is a team-taught, school-based program to change
food behaviors and increase physical activity in fifth-grade
students. Jump Into Action helps students make healthy food choices
and be more physically active. Students in Jump Into Action learn
how fast they are growing now and about the food choices that can
help them. They set goals to drink more milk and fewer sodas and
other sweetened drinks. Fitting in five or more fruits and
vegetables helps them hit their fiber target. They read nutrition
facts and ingredient lists on food labels to make informed food
choices. Students also learn about the connection between physical
activity and healthy weight. They use pedometers to see how active
they are. They learn to trade screen time for 60 minutes of physical
activity every day.
