The Healthy Kids Project features the zany and loveable Zuber Tubers (and their nemeses Sugar Baddie and The Cupcakes) in ten 60-second animated musical videos. The project is designed to educate and excite K-2nd graders on key health concepts to help prevent childhood obesity, diabetes and related illnesses.
The project teaches not only successful actions (limiting refined sugar, choosing water as a beverage, choosing fresh foods over processed foods), but also successful strategies (valuing the body, not letting past mistakes impede future success, taking one step at a time toward a goal, helping others to make good choices).
The videos are accompanied by Teacher Resources, which fulfill Texas state mandated requirements for reading, math, science, or social studies. It's a turnkey kit for teachers to impart critical life lessons about health, without taking time away from core subjects.
The Healthy Kids Project videos are the first of many Zuber Tuber adventures to come!
