Body Quest group of children having packed lunches

The Body Quest Warriors, a group of animated characters, are leading the fight to prevent childhood obesity. Body Quest is an innovative childhood obesity prevention initiative that empowers third graders and also their parents to make healthier choices.

Body Quest

This statewide effort employs a combination of theory-driven classroom instruction, technology, and evidence-based approaches to prevent and reduce childhood obesity. The Body Quest Warriors challenge elementary youth to develop healthy behaviors through Apple iPad apps. Third graders are energized in new ways to eat fruits and vegetables offered through the National School Lunch Program.

Momentum continues into the home environment with simple, fun, and action-oriented parent participation, setting this initiative apart as an exemplary multi-level intervention.

Key Objectives:

  1. Increase student fruit and vegetable consumption through the National School Lunch Program
  2. Impact student choices regarding sugary beverage consumption and physical activity
  3. Help parents make the home more vegetable friendly through recipe preparation
  4. Motivate parents to also make positive changes through text message reminders
