Students alter their speed according to the healthiness of snack foods in this dynamic game.
|Description:||In this game, students will speed up or slow down their movements in response to the healthiness of the snack food mentioned.|
|Objective:||Students will distinguish between "go" (healthy) and "slow" (less healthy) snack foods.|
Although all foods can fit into a healthy eating plan in moderation, it is important to reinforce that healthier foods give the body more energy to play and grow. "Junk foods," (processed foods high in fat and added sugar), contain a significant amount of calories but add very little nutrition to kids’ diets.
It is important to connect kids with their food and get them thinking about food less in terms of "good" and "gross" and more in terms of "healthy" and "less healthy" (or "go" and "slow").
