Sprout - Activity Guide and Programming

  • This was a three part project done in conjunction with Project Healthy Schools and University Preparatory Academy. The project was to be based on food and so we went into the school and talked to sixth grade classes about their eating habits. Since the majority had poor eating habits we decided to educate the children about nutrition and to convince them that eating healthy can be fun. Because all of the children’s learning is activity based, we made a guide book full of activities that taught the children about nutrition. We then asked the kids to create a healthy recipe and bring it into school for an event called “Taste-Bud Challenge.” We wanted to show the kids that healthy food can be pleasing to their taste buds. Finally, we collected all the recipes and created a cookbook for the kids that contained healthy information as well as the participant’s recipes.
