Our FitKids puzzles are intended to be a "hands on" take home assignment to be reinforced by the students parents or guardians, who are the decision makers when purchasing groceries for daily meals.
In order for a student to complete his or her puzzle they must meet their daily allowances for each of the "five major food groups". Their are sixteen puzzle pieces for what they eat and a very important seventeenth piece for their 60 minutes of exercise. Each of the puzzle pieces represents "one" serving of each food group. As the student eats a serving of each food group throughout the day, they will be able to complete their FitKids puzzle.
The FitKids puzzle, is made up of magnetic material, in order to be attached to any easily accessible place; the refrigerator, dishwasher, washing machine or other metal surfaces that your students will be able to access safely. (Do not attach to ovens)
Try to get your students to complete their puzzles for a week, without missing a single day.
Reward your students with a "Healthy Living Award" for their success (pictured on the parents/educators page).
