FoodPlay Productions is an Emmy-award winning nutrition media company which tours the nation’s schools using the power of live theatre and interactive resources to turn kids onto healthy eating and lifestyles.

In partnership with the US Department of Agriculture, Centers for Disease Control, the Harvard Pilgrim Healthcare Foundation and Departments of Public Health and Education, FoodPlay Productions offer children a fun way to learn about nutrition. The program uses juggling, colorful characters, motivating messages, music, dance, magic and audience participation to inspire education and empower.

This is a research-based program with proven results. USDA and CDC sponsored evaluations showed dramatic improvements in students’ nutrition and health knowledge attitudes and behaviors. This program, delivered in the Trinidad School District, will reach all of the 350 students at Fishers Peak Elementary, grades 2-5.
