Resource Type:Online Resource
Website and/or Calendar Links
Food Fun from Apples to Zucchini is an online resource created by the University of Illinois Extension for youth. Food Fun provides an alphabet of fruit and vegetables, fruit and vegetable activities and games (to play online or to print), a gallery of fruits and vegetables, and resources for teachers.
The website has been designed for use by elementary grades, but can be adapted and modified by adding activities and study skills appropriate for that grade level.
The program is interdisciplinary and is designed to introduce students to produce they may not be familiar with by talking a little bit about fun facts and nutritional information. The website will also help to enhance students’ math, reading, writing, and creative arts skills.
This website is an excellent resource to use with the USDA Fresh Fruit and Vegetable programs as well as other childhood obesity programs.
