Children's Power Play! Campaign Resources

The Network for a Healthy California — Children's Power Play! Campaign develops and tests a variety of resources to help educate, motivate, and empower 9- to 11-year-old children to eat fruits and vegetables and be physically active. The materials are research-based, educator-friendly, and appealing to children.

Qualifying community organizations in California can request free copies of the Campaign’s educational and promotional materials through their Children's Power Play! Campaign regional coordinator. Materials include printed copies of the Idea & Resource Kits, student workbooks for each participating student, and promotional items to reinforce educational activities conducted with children.

    Power Up for Learning is a supplement to the School Idea & Resource Kits for fourth and fifth grade teachers. By using both resources, you can integrate physical activity into the Children’s Power Play! Campaign by not only teaching your students about the importance of eating fruits and vegetables, but also by being physically active through a combination of classroom lessons, large-space physical activities, and quick energizers.
