Rideout Healthy Kids

Rideout Healthy Kids School Assemblies
Eat Well. Move Well. Feel Well. Be Well.

Thought provoking and fun, Rideout Healthy Kids — The 8 Healthy Habits is an interactive musical theater performance that uses light-hearted comedy (think Nickelodeon or Disney Channel) to show students it's cool to be healthy by using skits (often with student participation), humor, and music aimed to teach students how poor health habits will affect them later in life.

Actors in the assembly sing, dance, act and show that it's fun to be more active, watch less TV, and make better choices to eat healthy. This 50-minute assembly is designed for kids in grades K-6 and will be presented at schools throughout Yuba and Sutter counties.

What participating schools receive
As part of the Rideout Healthy Kids school program, schools receive a live theater assembly (50 minutes) for students in grades K-6. We will typically perform for 100 to 500 students per audience. Smaller schools sometimes combine with other nearby schools at a single location.

Great Reasons To bring Rideout Healthy Kids to schools
In addition to the assembly, schools will receive follow-up materials for students, teachers, parents, and health staff, to help extend the nutrition and health messages throughout the year. Each school will receive a Rideout Healthy Kids Resource Kit providing fun, hands-on lesson plans and reproducible activity sheets to follow up on the enthusiasm generated by the show.

Rideout Healthy Kids will teach these important health initiatives:

Eat Well
Making healthier food choices that are full of nutrients can improve memory, boost creativity, and build overall health.

Move Well
Everyone needs regular physical activity for stronger muscles and to increase energy, regardless of their shape, size, health or age.

Feel Well
The Journey to Well-Being
Happy. Secure. Content. Peaceful. Healthy. Thriving. This is what we want out of life. This is what we want for our children. We want to spend more time in these places of wellbeing and less in stress, worry, sick and sad.

Be Well
Rideout Healthy Kids
resources will offer a full range of information and tools to help young people manage their health.

Assemblies begin February 2014.
