Moves With Healthy Foods

Curriculum Relevance:

PDHPE: Growth and Development - Lifestyle Choices - Active Lifestyle - Personal Health Choices.

Healthy Eating + Exercise = Energy.

Colourful props, hand puppets, marionettes and heaps of humour are all combined in this very visual comedy to get across the important messages of healthy eating and lifestyle.

Karina has a show to produce about healthy eating and exercise. Dressed in her brightest artificial colours and desperate to play a part, Lolly-Pop shows up to audition. Using all their powers of negotiation Karina and her wacky assistant, Stage Hand, have to balance out the content of the show. The fresh fruits and vegetables are overjoyed with their starring roles but convincing the refined sugars they can only make a brief appearance is more of a challenge.

Karina has her work cut out for her, firstly finding all the acts she needs and then getting them to work together. Super Banana is ready to split when he finds out that Top Banana wants to fire him out of a cannon. On the food pyramid each food group is shown the role they have in a healthy balanced diet and are allotted time in the review accordingly. Just when it looks as if the show will come to a halt because neither Karina or Stage Hand can find an act to cover water and exercise, Tap Dancer comes rap dancing to the rescue.

This colourful marionette cabaret is all set to toe tapping music and each of the puppets does something unexpected to astonish, amaze and of course promote a healthy lifestyle..
