Teens line up to learn about good nutrition at the Change One Thing Truck

During the first week in August teenagers in Clinton Hill were able to stop by the “Change One Thing” truck and learn about good nutrition. The truck is touring all over New York City this summer, educating teens about how to make better choices for their health and diet.

Teens by the truck gave out raisins and popcorn in order to show their peers that it is ‘cool’ to eat well. Workers at the truck are encouraging teens to make one healthy change to their eating habits each day, such as drinking water instead of soda, or eating carrots instead of French fries.

In addition to the truck there is a game for the teens to play called the “Change One Thing Challenge.” This computer ‘touch’ game quizzes the teens about different aspects of nutrition and food and gives examples of improved eating habits.
