Y5210 SCHOOL NUTRITION & ACTIVITY PROGRAM

Our Y5210 program was created to teach kids healthy choices and remind them that every day, they should consume at least 5 servings of fruits or vegetables, have 2 or less hours of "screen time, 1 hour of exercise and 0 sugar-sweetened drinks.

HELP KIDS TAKE THEIR FIRST STEPS TO BECOMING HEALTHIER

Studies show that kids solidify their eating habits by about the third grade. To ensure kids develop good habits, we've developed a toolkit to help teach them.

Our Y5210 program uses in-class student information sheets, activity sheets and challenges to teach kids about the importance of exercising and eating right. There's also teacher materials, a tracking poster, surveys to measure effectiveness and a DVD of exercises designed to be performed in-class.

IN-CLASS CHALLENGES

Your students will perform in-class challenges to ensure they are learning and living their new healthy habits.

A two disc DVD set leading you and your class through a 10-minute in-class exercise is included, along with an exercise band for you and your students. Additionally, kids can track their progress each week by filling out their program tracking poster, which is large enough to hang on your classroom wall.

All of the information is printed and ready-to-use!

TEACHER MATERIALS

Weekly informational sheets have been developed for teachers to guide you through the details of the healthy choices program. Each week the concepts to be addressed are detailed to help you explain the specifics to your classroom. Additionally, keys are provided to the coloring and seek-and-find activity sheets.

Each kit also includes a survey geared to teachers so that we can continue to include your ideas and feedback into our program.

SURVEYS

We're not only concerned with getting information about healthy choices out to kids and parents, but we also want to make sure they understand it and make healthy choices a part of their daily lives.

We've developed pre-test and post-test surveys for both students and parents to help us, and you, gauge the eating and exercise habits of your class. Learning what they do in school and at home will help us all to create a better lifestyle for our kids!
