Choose Health: Food, Fun, and Fitness (CHFFF) is an award-winning, research-based 6-lesson curriculum for 8-12-year-olds that uses experiential learning to teach healthy eating and active play. CHFFF targets evidence-based behaviors for preventing obesity and chronic disease: less sweetened drinks, fewer high-fat and high-sugar foods, more vegetables, fruits, whole grains, and active play. Posters, visual aids, scanned food packages, active game instruction cards, game pieces, and other teaching materials are all included.
