Activities to Promote Healthy Nutrition and Physical Activity Habits Among Children(FN692, Revised April 2022)
Are you looking for hands-on nutrition and fitness activities for your students or club members? Most of the activities in this
publication require little time, preparation or equipment. Most can be modified to fit the knowledge and skills of a variety of age groups.
These activities provide a way for teachers and volunteer educators to reinforce nutrition and fitness concepts for children in classrooms, after-school
programs or club settings – and have fun, too! You might consider involving older students as “teachers” for the younger students.
We hope these lessons and activities encourage children to eat smart and play hard!
