Families Walk Through the Pyramid at Fun and Fit as a Family Festival
March 2, 2010
Healthy Kids Challenge recently participated in the 2010 Fun and Fit as a Family Festival, hosted by Food Network South Beach Wine & Food Festival in Miami, Florida. Our Walk Through the Pyramid™ interactive display showed kids and families that healthy eating can be easy, fun, colorful and tasty; which included low-fat Cabot cheese giveaways from our sponsor, Cabot Creamery! Kids also enjoyed physical activity games which brought smiles to their faces and understanding that healthy movement can be fun!
“I teach 2nd graders and want to present more information about healthy eating…this would really catch their attention!” — teacher and festival participant
The Fun and Fit as a Family Festival allowed a venue for HKC to share our HEAR-SEE-DO approach for healthy change. Kids HEAR healthy eating and physical activity messages; they SEE colorful, tasty looking food examples and ways to exercise; and as they completed their MyPyramid color-coded bracelets, they were challenged (DO) to look at their bracelet during meals at school and home to pick out the food group colors on their plate!
Let us hear about the Hear-See-Do ideas that have worked for you!
