Exhibition Highlights the Importance of Making Good Choices for Daily Health
What is in the food we eat? Are fruits and vegetables important? What everyday activities burn the most calories? EAT WELL, PLAY WELL answers all these questions and more by helping children and families discover that healthy choices are all around us. This family friendly interactive exhibition encourages a healthy lifestyle by teaching the science of making the right food choices and showing children and adults there are many exciting ways to stay active. The October 12, 2014 – January 11, 2015 exhibition will help visitors of all ages discover what an appropriate serving size looks like, experience firsthand what it takes to burn off calories, test their flexibility and balance and realize they can reduce their risk of disease with healthy choices that are within their reach. The exhibition includes Balancing Act, Calories In, Calories Out, Dinner Theater, Be Flexible, Supermarket Nutrition, Animal Motion, Sizing Up Serving, Eat a Rainbow and Screen Time. Eat Well, Play Well was produced and is toured by the Oregon Museum of Science and Industry. This exhibition was made possible by a Science Education Partnership Award grant from the National Center for Research Resources, a component of the National Institutes of Health.
