Food is Fun is a set of four lessons about food related topics. The lessons closely resemble newsletters and consist of an 11” x 17” paper folded to make a 4 page handout, as well as a 1 page insert. Each handout contains a story on the cover related to food and a food related joke, an activity and recipe on the inside with preparation tips for children and grownups, and an activity tip and “thing to do with a banana” on the back. The inside two pages containing an activity and a coloring page can be spread out and children are encouraged to place the “poster” on their refrigerator. The insert contains a survey or activity for children to complete. On the back of the insert are additional lesson evaluation questions and a blank for an agency’s return address label.
