A Straaaaage Dream

576 views 6 months ago
"A Straaaaange Dream" is a video of a play that was written by copywriters, registered dietitians and health education specialists from Tanner Health System, with input from pediatricians on Tanner's medical staff, and sponsored by Get Healthy, Live Well community collaborative. It teaches the importance of eating right—including staying away from sweets and other "empty calorie" foods—as well as the health dangers of becoming overweight and the benefits of a physically active lifestyle. "A Straaaaange Dream" features a cast of three who assume the rolls of a young girl, a giant candy bar who brings the "straaaaange" dreams, a fairy dietitian, a health and fitness coach and a highbrow character who helps pull it all together. Through the course of the play, the performers encourage participation by bringing kids up on stage, asking questions and singing songs. Children also learn the pediatrician-backed lesson behind 5-2-1-0—five servings of fruit and vegetables, no more than two hours of screen time—such as watching television or playing video games—at least one hour of physical activity and no sugary sodas or sweets, each day. The play also introduces the My Plate model, which has replaced the food pyramid as the preferred way to plan and structure healthy, balanced meals.
