Bingo Cards

Pick a Better Snack Bingo is all about healthy family fun! Each card includes a variety of seasonally appropriate activities and foods to try. A family achieves bingo by completing a row on the card, vertically, horizontally or diagonally. The cards also features tips and resources to help families be active and eat well.

Coloring Pages

Have fun with these fruit and vegetable coloring pages! The coloring pages support the Pick a Better Snack monthly lessons. Nutrition educators can use them in the classroom to ease transition times or with after-school and summer nutrition education sessions to reinforce healthy messages. A nutrition educator may choose to just send the pages home, too. Most of the pages were designed to encourage parents and children to color together!

Family Newsletters

Monthly newsletters are sent home with students to give families ideas for eating healthy and staying active on a tight budget. Newsletters are based on the produce featured in the monthly Pick a Better Snack lessons.
