The Eat Smart B Active® Family challenge is an opportunity for your family to participate in some healthy competition to see who can pack a superhero lunchbox that includes the five 'everyday' food groups AND be active each day.
The Eat Smart B Active® program's evidence base, published in international peer-reviewed Paediatrics Journal - Children, highlighted a significant increase in children's nutrition knowledge, positive attitudinal change, and most importantly, behavioural change through increasing nutritional content in children's lunch boxes (including the doubling of vegetables and reduction in processed, packaged 'sometimes' foods).
What Parents have to say ...
"This is the absolute best buy — my daughters LOVE singing, dancing and learning about how to make healthy choices. I definitely recommend it to all parents!"
- Nicole, Mum, Algester QLD
"With my four year old boy starting school I wanted us to learn together how to pack healthy lunchboxes. So we enrolled in Eat Smart B Active (my friend recommended it after buying it for her son, as not only did he love it, but she got a lot out of it as well). It has honestly totally blown my expectations. I love watching my son engaging with the Boogie Woogies superheroes and their awesome music. My son can't wait to go to school and show off his 'superhero' lunchboxes.
- Jo, Mum, Coogee NSW
"As a Prep Teacher and a mum of a five year old, I must say I am so impressed at the learning my daughter has received from Eat Smart B Active. She is a five star little eater now! I'm proud to say her Teacher will be impressed when she sees my daughter's superhero lunchbox."
- Meghan, Mum, Bendigo
"I wish Eat Smart B Active was around when I was a kid! Who would have thought learning about healthy eating could be so much fun! My son has never shown so much interest in eating his vegies before! And the Boogie Woogies' songs are so catchy. My son and I sing them on the way to school!"
- John, Dad, Geelong VIC
