FOODPLAY is a comprehensive nutrition education school assembly program that uses live theater, juggling, music, magic, and audience participation to turn kids on to healthy eating and active living. Featuring school-wide performances, fun family nights, and standards-based follow-up resources, FOODPLAY programs attempt to trigger school-wide excitement getting all stakeholders on board - students, teachers, parents, food service, and administrators, to want to work together to create healthy school environments and effective wellness policies. FOODPLAY programs are designed to market healthy foods to children and their families, increase school breakfast and lunch participation, and provide fun-filled nutrition education for classroom, cafeteria, and home use.
