Adventist Health Rideout Healthy Kids School Assemblies

Eat Well. Move Well. Feel Well. Be Well.

Thought provoking and fun, Adventist Rideout Healthy Kids teaches The 8 Healthy Habits, an interactive musical theater performance that uses light-hearted comedy (think Nickelodeon or Disney Channel) to show students it's cool to be healthy by using skits (often with student participation), humor, and music aimed to teach students how poor health habits will affect them later in life.

Actors in the assembly sing, dance, act and show that it's fun to be more active, watch less TV, and make better choices to eat healthy. This 45-minute assembly is designed for kids in grades K-6 and is presented at schools throughout Yuba and Sutter counties.

What participating schools receive

As part of the Adventist Rideout Healthy Kids school program, schools receive a live theater assembly (45 minutes) for students in grades K-6. We typically perform for 100 to 500 students per audience but every school has the opportunity to host an Adventist Rideout Healthy Kids assembly; smaller schools sometimes combine with other nearby schools at a single location.

Great Reasons to bring Adventist Rideout Healthy Kids to schools

In addition to the assembly, schools will receive follow-up materials for students, teachers, parents, and health staff, to help extend the nutrition and health messages throughout the year. Each school will receive a Adventist Rideout Healthy Kids Resource Kit providing fun, hands-on lesson plans and reproducible activity sheets to follow up on the enthusiasm generated by the show.

Adventist Rideout Healthy Kids will teach these important health initiatives:

Eat Well

Making healthier food choices that are full of nutrients can improve memory, boost creativity, and build overall health.

Move Well

Everyone needs regular physical activity for stronger muscles and to increase energy, regardless of their shape, size, health or age.

Feel Well

The Journey to Well-Being

Happy. Secure. Content. Peaceful. Healthy. Thriving. This is what we want out of life. This is what we want for our children. We want to spend more time in these places of wellbeing and less in stress, worry, sickness and sorrow.

Be Well

Adventist Rideout Healthy Kids resources will offer a full range of information and tools to help young people manage their health and their well-being.

Assemblies began February 2014; since that time Adventist Rideout Healthy Kids has performed for over 150 schools and more than 65,000 young students, school staff and adults, impacting families throughout the Yuba-Sutter region with the message of healthy living!
