eatWELL programs are designed to help you increase fruit, vegetable and whole grain consumption, gain practical experience with preparing healthy food and be able to identify nutrient dense foods.


eatWELL programs include:

“Eat This, Not That” Trivia

  • A trivia game used to educate students on choosing healthy FREGGIE (fruit & vegetable) options in a variety of food categories (yogurt, fruit & nut bars, frozen vegetable meals, and dining hall options).
  • Students learn how to spot “hidden ingredients” that affect nutritional value, how to choose healthier food based on nutrient density, and tips for increasing FREGGIE consumption to meet the 5-a-day goal.

Smoothie Creation

  • A hands-on opportunity to create a healthy smoothie. Education on nutrient density, cutting fruits and vegetables and avoiding smoothie pitfalls.

WELLWVU partnered with President Gee to prepare a delicious FREGGIE smoothie! Smoothies are a great way to start your day the healthy way.

FREGGIE Match-Up, FREG In Season

  • Well-suited for a classroom presentation or tabling event, these board games put student’s FREGGIE knowledge to the test.
  • Learn which FREG contain high amounts of certain vitamins and minerals as well as when different FREGGIE are in season and how to prepare them. The games can be offered in conjunction or as separate activities.
