"Power Play" teaches activity, good nutrition to thousands in Alameda County

Proper nutrition is critical to children’s health, but nutrition education is not a part of California’s standard school curriculum. To teach kids how to stay healthy, UCCE Alameda County nutrition advisor Lucrecia Farfan-Ramirez has been working with educators to teach 9- to 11-year-olds about the benefits of nutrition and physical activity using the Power Play campaign. Power Play encourages kids to eat 3 to 5 cups of fruits and vegetables and participate in at least 60 minutes of physical activity every day. So far, the campaign’s message has reached 31 Alameda County schools, 23,136 children, and 2,220 parents.
