Provide your students with the knowledge they need to build a healthy nutritional foundation, while encouraging them to stay active!
Healthy eating has a large impact on a child’s overall health and development, effecting their energy levels, behavior, and academic functioning. In the long-term, healthy eating is associated with a reduced risk of many diseases, including heart disease, cancer, stroke, and more. However, most young people are not following the recommendations set forth in the Dietary Guidelines for Americans:
The time for nutritional education has never been more apparent. Our new nutrition section is designed to give you the tools you need to teach your classroom how to maintain a healthy lifestyle through proper nutrition and exercise.

Healthy in a Hurry™
Get healthy in a hurry in this race to fill up your shopping bag with healthy foods! Teaches students the difference between healthy and unhealthy foods, while reinforcing the positive effects of exercise. 100 beanbags depicting graphics of healthy and unhealthy foods are spread out on the floor. Teams race to collect the beanbags, returning the healthy foods to their own shopping bag while adding unhealthy foods to other teams’ bags. Once a team receives an unhealthy food, they can complete the exercise noted on the outside of their shopping bag to “burn off” the unhealthy food, then add it to another team’s bag or return it to the center. Keep your class learning and entertained in this fun, non-stop action game! Includes 100 beanbags, set of 6 Rainbow® shopping bags, storage bag, and game instructions with game play variations.
It’s a supermarket scramble to achieve a 2,000 calorie diet! Teach your students about a balanced diet while keeping track of calories. Teams race to build a balanced diet by tossing beanbags into the shopping cart. If the throw is successful, the team receives a special nutrition calorie card to add to their shopping bag. For an added level of challenge, substitute flying discs for beanbags, or challenge teams to successfully balance a spinning plate before they are able to toss their beanbag. Includes Magnus™ shopping cart with push handle and smooth-rolling casters, 100 nutrition cards with food graphics and calorie contents, 6 Rainbow® shopping bags, 12 Rainbow® beanbags, 6 Rainbow® flying discs, 6 spinning plates, and game instructions with game play variations.
