Theme V: Child Nutrition (6wk)




Copy and distribute the I Like to Cook It, Cook It! template (English/Spanish) to each classroom teacher. Create a CATCH MVP bulletin board or post them in the cafeteria when students return them to you.

Some ideas…
  • Coordinate this idea with the art teacher; have a contest to see which class or grade level returns the most drawings.
  • Post a picture of the completed bulletin boards on social media. Use #CATCHworks.



Host a special theme or contest to promote healthy GO foods on your menu (e.g., Tasty Tuesdays, Secret GO Food Day, etc.). 

Some ideas...
  • Check out the Promotion section of the Eat Smart Guide for ideas.
  • Visit www.CATCH.org for more ideas and pictures of what other schools have done.



Share your MVP expertise! Lend your support and participate in a scheduled school event (PTA meeting, classroom party, etc.).

Perhaps you could...
  • Provide healthy snacks or demonstrate your favorite healthy recipe.
  • Set up an information booth about your program.
  • See the Eat Smart Guide for additional ideas.



Plan for your next snack attack and be prepared. Don’t be tempted by vending machines or fast food. Keep a variety of tasty, nutritious, ready-to-eat snacks at home, work, or wherever you might be.

Some ideas...

  • Make little bags of baby carrots, nuts or dried fruit to help stop hunger. Pack one serving per bag so you are aware of how much you eat.
  • A serving of no fat or low fat yogurt, carrots with hummus, or apples with peanut/almond butter will help give you an energy boost.
