Energizers for nutrition education

Need a short activity that gets people — young and old alike — moving that can tie into your nutrition and/or health education lesson as needed? Looking for a quick activity idea to refresh your participants during a conference or business meeting? The Energizers for Nutrition Education are for you!

These activities can be adapted for your audience as needed and are great for use in school classrooms, nursing homes, community groups, and more. Each includes guidance on the target audience, preparation needed, how to run the activity, making adaptations, and using the energizer with other health and nutrition-related lesson plans.

We are introducing new Energizers later in 2021. While our health and nutrition educators are working on new content, you can still print and download all of the previous Energizers for Nutrition Education from the University of Minnesota library.
