There are lots of programs fo Scouts as well--I have gotten pistachios from CA to share with the girls--yes, it is marketing but it is also trying a healthy food! Calbot Cheese has something as well. Do some google searches and you'll find lots.

That's fantastic, thanks so much... I'll totally start my Daisies on that. Shape up is a good idea, considering they're surrounded by cookies all the time.

It's actually a GSUSA patch. You can find the requirements and all necessary info at this link:

For my Daisies, I made my own spreadsheets that were a little easier for them to use. I'm even taking a few meetings to go to the park or just outside to let them have some active outdoor playtime. With everything focusing on Cookie Sales right now, it has given them a much needed break.

I am working on the Shape Up patch with my Daisies, which introduces them to regular exercise and healthy eating at the same time.

Our Brownie troop did the "Eat Right Stay Healthy" Try-it this week. I liked it because it was more about ingredients & food labels and eating the right thing rather than another trip up the food pyramid. We are doing a tour of a local grocery store next week to finish it up.

I know there's a Healthy Eating Badge at the Brownie Level, and multiple food-related choices at Juniors and then Older Girls. How do you incorporate these things into your troops?

All of my Brownies have earned the Healthy Eating Badge. We talked about the food pyramid, and we always make sure snacks at our meetings are healthy. We made some different healthy snacks during one meeting, and talked about different ways to get all the healthy foods in daily.
