Updated! January Action Idea and Tip Sheet!
January 4, 2013
This month’s ideas are fresh and fun for the New Year, helping you create appeal for healthy eating with a fun Drink Think themed game and simple tips for helping kids make their own breakfast. Check ‘em out…
*Take Action! Play the “Size It Up, Measure It Up” Drink Think Game*
Make a healthy SPLASH with a Drink Think. Choose water or low fat milk more often.
Ask kids if they know the number of ounces for milk they can choose in the cafeteria; compare their response to the actual number of ounces. Proceed with a discussion about getting enough milk in a day and how to add it up.
- Pass out the paper plates and instruct each person to write whatever combination of numbers you would like them to practice (whole numbers or fractions)
- Everyone tosses their 3 plates into a designated circle.
- Once they have tossed their plates, they walk to the circle and pick up 3 more plates.
- Instruct each person to: a) add the number of ounces found on each plate and b) calculate the number of ounces they would still need to have to equal 8 ounces of milk in 1 serving.
