Challenge Special: Snack Attack Activity and Two Printables  

Honoring our special April Healthy Foods Challenges, we have 3 freebies to help you meet those challenges this month. Enjoy!

Snack Attack Activity

1. Ask kids to name benefits of snacks containing less fat and less added sugar.

  • Help us feel good and feel good about ourselves
  • A healthier body weight
  • A healthier heart
  • Gives more nutrients to do our best in school

2. Discuss why we make the choices we do. Is it because the snacks:

  • Taste good?
  • Are easy to fix?
  • Satisfy hunger or give energy?
  • Are what their parents or someone else buys or fixes?
  • Are the coolest ones to eat?

For the entire April monthly activity instructions, click here. This activity is also found on pages 93-94 of the Balance My Day Nutrition Curriculum-Grades 6-8. One of my favorites!
