“Visit a nutrition booth at an event? No. They'll just lecture me. I know I'm not healthy.“
"Stop by the nutrition booth? No. I don't have time. Plus, that's boring."
These are some comments the public might have when it comes to nutrition booths. Because we want to change these comments and incorporate more physical activity, we are trying new carnival-type games when we provide nutrition booths at school and community events.
At one of my school's Open House events, I put together this fun and easy educational game. Since I was teaching the “Building Strong Teeth” lesson, I used the "sometimes" and "anytime" dairy pictures, bean bags, and Frisbees to create an activity for all of our participants (parents and students). During our visit, we reviewed good sources of calcium in order to have strong teeth and bones.
