Watch the video below to see how one school is serving healthy foods that kids enjoy.
Recent budget cuts have forced many schools to become creative in their fundraising efforts. Read how one high school is capitalizing on the recent food truck craze.
The U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) MyPlate Fruits and Veggies Video Challenge invites you to create short videos (approximately 30 seconds) showing how you’re adding fruits and vegetables to your diet without spending a lot of money. We encourage you to create videos that are inspiring and instructive — show a healthy tip that has worked for you and that you think can work for other people. Videos must be submitted in one of the following categories:
- Tips for kids
- Tips when eating at home
- Tips when eating away from home
The goal of the challenge is to encourage healthy eating habits and raise awareness around USDA’s MyPlate dietary guidelines, which includes making half your plate fruits and vegetables.
Note: Team members must be at least 18, but your video can include minors under 18 as long as the necessary consent forms are provided. (“Team members” do not include people who appear in the video but don’t make any other contributions to the submission.) For details on eligibility, review the Official Rules.
Deadline for entries is November 15, 2011. For more information see the contest Web site: http://fruitsandveggies.challenge.gov/
I hope you will be able to make time for students to participate in this wonderful opportunity!
