Learn how to make smart food choices in the aisles of your local Giant Food store!


On this nutrition-based field trip, students learn to be a healthy kid through everyday healthy habits. Each stop of the trip reinforces a healthy idea, like drinking plenty of water or choosing lean proteins. Students also understand the importance of a balanced diet using MyPlate principles. The hands-on activities and maybe a tasty sample or two are sure to provide your students with fun, lasting memories. Kid Healthy Ideas promotes the importance of personal care, physical activity and the protection of the environment.
