children eating applesHere at the Arizona Department of Health Services we work together to promote healthy eating and active living to decrease obesity.  The Check Out MyPlate Video Search is a fun way for kids and their families to show how they create healthy habits at home or at school.  For tips and ideas to get you and your kids started on your video, visit today.  Let’s see how many MyPlate videos our kids in Arizona can create!

The Check Out MyPlate Video Search is challenging parents and teachers (with parents’ permission) of kids across the country to submit a short video (60 seconds or less) showing how they create healthy habits using MyPlate and being physically active.

Videos should include a MyPlate visual, at least one healthy eating tip, and at least one physical activity tip.  Kids aged 2-18 years are eligible to enter with the help of an adult by April 30th.  Videos can be submitted in the following age categories: 2-10, 11-13, and 14-18.  Learn more about the search here.
