Rather than reinvent the wheel, I encourage you to check out their website for inspiration.
In particular, I loved the page about lesson plans. One of my favorite ideas--the "Mix-A-Salad" Game--was in the "Team Nutrition Fruits and Vegetables Lesson Plans for Preschool Children."
- Children stand in a circle to form a pretend bowl.
- Each child is given a picture of a fruit or vegetable.
- The leader says "I'm going to make a salad...and in my salad I am going to have _________ (name of a fruit or vegetable) that is _________ (say an action).
- Suggested actions include:
- Rolling their arms
- Walking on tip-toes
