Eat from the Rainbow

Everything's better with prizes! Whether you're putting together a game, puzzle, project, or quiz, adding prizes to the competition can be great fun. And if the prizes include helpful nutrition and health information, then it's even better!

I've had great success offering prizes for a whole range of activities and have found that friendly, lighthearted competitions can really improve participant engagement. That's why I want to walk you through some fabulous prizes that you can use  in your own activities...

MyPlate BookmarksLet's begin with these fun bookmarks!

The MyPlate Food Group Bookmarks come in packs of 50 and feature foods from all of MyPlate's food groups. The back of each bookmark has a great list of interest new fruits and vegetables to try.

You can use the MyPlate bookmarks as prizes for contests and raffles, give them away for wellness fairs, or hand them out to clients as part of a positive message to make new friends with healthful foods. They really pep up bulletin boards and wellness fair displays too!

Nutrition ApronAnother great prize is this classy apron.

The Nutrition Apron is one of my favorite new products. Its high-quality material and the colorful nutrition graphic really makes it unique. It's produced for Food and Health by a company that makes uniforms for professional chefs!

I especially like offering this apron as raffle prize for presentations or health fairs, but it also lends itself well to rewarding entries in recipe contests or nutrition seminars, where you know that your participants will strive to get such a fabulous gift.

Pillars of Healthful SnackingOf course, who wouldn't love a bright and colorful poster?

When in doubt, go with a poster.! They pep up any space and offer a wide range of health messages. There are so many great posters to choose from, but I've really been loving these lately...

Of course, if you're looking for more inspiration, you can't go wrong with the Nutrition Education Store. If you don't see exactly what you're looking for, contact me and I'll make it for you!
