Food for Thought annual contests

Food for Thought FFA Challenge

Implement a healthy eating campaign in your school. Can you get students to: Choose whole grains? Change attitudes and behaviors toward healthy eating?

This year’s special emphasis is on gluten education! Teams addressing this issue will receive particular attention. Help people understand gluten and why a gluten-free diet is not always a healthy choice.

Here are some ideas to get you started:

  • Produce public service announcements
  • Host tasting events
  • Write articles for the school newspaper
  • Partner with local groceries and food producers
  • Talk with lunchroom workers, coaches, and health teachers for suggestions
  • Start an advisory council in your school district
