Skill work:

Food is Fuel: Even for Kids, it’s important to start to understand how different foods help our bodies to be healthy and strong: Foods like Carbohydrates and Fats help give our body energy.  Protein helps repair damage and build muscle.  Learning what foods are good sources for Protein, Carbohydrate, and Fat will help us make good choice about what to eat throughout the day.  To practice this, table three cones (or boxes or whatever is convenient) as each of the three macronutrient groups.  Athletes start on a line.  When the trainer calls out a food item (broccoli, fish, avocado, etc), athletes run to the place that they feel best represents the macronutrient category of that food.  Feel free to discuss briefly between rounds and remember that some foods are significant sources of more than one macronutrient group.  If appropriate for the age of your kiddos, start with “fruits and vegetables”, “meats”,etc. before getting too deep into macronutrients.

Warm up:

Farmers & Lumberjacks: Spread a bunch of tall traffic cones (trees) around the workout space.   Assign half the class to be Farmers, who work to keep the cones upright (plant trees) and the other half of the class to be Lumberjacks who tip over the cones (cut down trees).  Recommended guidelines: only hands can be used to tip or stand up cones, kids switch roles at least once during the game.
