Play a tag game to spotlight nutritious food and drink choices and promote healthy eating.
Nutritious food choices give your body and brain fuel to move and think!
Say: Show your choice for each “Would you rather?” question.
Did you know that when you eat and drink, you are fueling your body and your brain?
Think of your body as a race car or a rocket. If you fill up with weak fuel, like junk food and sugary beverages, you just sputter along. However, if you choose strong fuel, like fruits, vegetables, whole grains, protein, milk, and water, you will have great energy.
The number one thing you need to know is that nutritious food choices are the best kinds of fuel for your body!
Today’s activity will help you learn about the food and beverage choices that are the best fuel for your body.
