Gincana de nutricao

Playing "hot potato" with an onion
Playing "hot potato" with an onion

Once a month until the end of the school year in december, we have been visiting the local public school of Hervalina Diniz to play a "gincana" with the children. Gincana is a brazilian term for a friendly competition that consists of creative games that score points across time until finally, the winning team gets a special prize.

In this case, we have developed a series of challenges for the kids to identify healthy food, how it is grown, and what could be done to grow it in a healthy way for the environment. The winning team will get the chance to go to a waterpark! 
The gincana was designed by Sinal staff and a nutricionist who specializes in teaching children healthy eating habits. 

The teams have been already divided into 3 big groups and the kids are very excited and participative - we are very happy and hope they will take this knowledge with them home to their families! this is an essential part of the success of the project.
