Choose Health: Food, Fun, and Fitness CHFFF is an award-winning, comprehensive nutrition and fitness curriculum composed of six hands-on lessons for year-olds 3rd-6th graders.
Topics include replacing sweetened drinks with low-fat milk and water, eating more vegetables, fruits, and whole grains, eating fewer high-fat and high-sugar foods, and playing actively 60 minutes a day. CHFFF is intended for use by Cooperative Extension educators and others with a background in nutrition and experience working with youth, and is aimed at a suggested group size of children.
Each lesson includes interactive nutrition activities, food preparation, active games, a goal setting challenge, and a family newsletter.
Posters, visual aids, scanned food packages, game pieces and instruction cards, and other teaching materials are all included. Practice-based evidence suggests that CHFFF promotes positive behavior change, with ificant improvements from pre to post in vegetable and fruit consumption, sweetened drinks, reading nutrition labels, and other food and activity-related behaviors.
