I visited one of my schools in West Palm Beach, FL this past week. The theme for the VPK class is Healthy Bodies. They staff was very excited about an experiment they were going to do for snack time.
The students were each getting $4 in play money. They could choose to buy 4 healthy snacks, a bananas, apple slices, raisins and yogurt OR they could buy one chocolate kiss for $4.
The results were that 23 our 26 students chose the healthy options.
You can see highlights in the video below. The Director, Sharon Alaimo, leads the activity.
