The Secrets of Nutrition

A Program That Reminds Kids About The Importance Of Good Nutrition & Healthy Habits

Mike Rose presents an incredible magic show that is also a reading program which outlines the importance of a healthy diet and exercise.  During the interactive program Mike presents information about nutrition using the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) guide lines as a framework.  Covered are various foods and their benefits, as well as information about daily servings, vitamins, nutrients and other nutritional facts.  The information is punctuated visually using interactive comedy and amazing magic tricks to make the concepts entertaining and memorable for the children.  The program material is geared for elementary age students and includes some basic material for the younger kids but also some more obscure information that the older kids will find more challenging.  Throughout the program references are made to various books that help to “unlock the secrets of nutrition.”  So the program not only promotes nutrition but reading and library use, too!

Studies indicate that children, ages 5 to 12, are eating too much fat and sweets and only about one half of the recommended servings of fruits and vegetables each day.  An analysis of data from a national survey shows that children eat only 2.4 servings of fruits and vegetables a day.  Additionally, obesity is increasing rapidly in youths in the United States.  According to a study from the Harvard School of Public Health, over 25% of children are overweight.  Promotion of fast food is cited as one of the key culprits.

To help counteract these statistics, Mike infuses amazing, and often hilarious magic into the nutritional messages that remind the children of the right way to eat and why.   And remember, throughout the program Mike continually uses books and new vocabulary words to emphasize certain points and encourages the children to go to their school library to learn more.  Because the program is presented in an entertaining way, the kids are more receptive to absorbing and retaining the important nutrition information and are more likely to visit the school library.

 

The Secrets of Nutrition was an excellent program! It was both entertaining and educational.”
