Project FAST Food (Spinach Pesto Pizza)
Delicious food can be prepared fresh and fast. Project: FAST Food is designed to help inspire both children and young adults to re-create their favorite meals through healthier options with everyday ingredients. In addition, the Project: FAST Food program incorporates physical activities in between cooking time to boost metabolism, which helps to burn calories quicker. The project is based around 3 fundamental principles: Movement, Wellness, and Food.
Project: FAST Food has the goal of fighting child obesity and help prevent the onset of Type 2 Diabetes, along with other health challenges associated from living an unhealthy lifestyle. The facts are heartbreaking: 1 in 3 children in America today are overweight or obese. Helping children learn how to consciously choose different food options both at the grocery store and at their favorite restaurants are extremely important steps that these children can take as they grow up into healthy and physically active adults. This project makes learning about these culinary and wellness concepts extremely fun and educational for your students.
Eating healthy is a choice. It never has to be boring, and it does not mean that it will taste bland. Eating healthy can be very affordable. It does not need to be complicated and can be created within an hour.
Project: FAST Food is not just about losing weight. Instead, we care about living a healthy and productive life. It’s not necessarily a different way of thinking. But we all know that it’s a better way of living.
Living a healthy life empowers our children to grow up with more self-confidence, discipline, and energy to conquer and exceed their goals.
