Empowering kids to stay active and make healthier food choices
Meet The Characters
High Five! I’m Meta Man, one of your body’s Super Heroes. You can’t see me but I am always with you. I control your energy levels and keep you up and running.
If you want to have Super Hero energy and not feel tired, then you need to eat REGULARLY and HEALTHILY, so that you have lots of fuel for your body.
Having lots of energy keeps you moving and alert so that you can burn off the calories that can make you fat and ill! This is how you will feel if you don’t eat and drink properly.
When you eat a healthy diet it’s much easier for me to stay alert and not struggle to do my job. If you eat too many sweets and junk food and don’t exercise, I start to look like this …
My tubes get blocked and I can’t pump oxygen around your body. You need me to stay alive. So please look after me!
If I get blocked or slow down, you get a TUMMY ACHE! Bad foods and a lack of water can make me bloated and tired too, just imagine how that would make you feel! (You probably won’t be able to poo properly either and that can be very bad for your health).
Try to have a good stretch each day to give me lots of room to do my job. Sit up nice and straight and walk as much as you can, otherwise I might end up looking like this!
I am Bossy Brain, the controller of your body – like the captain of a plane or boat! I send messages to the different parts of your body so that they know what you need them to do.
I am a muscle so you need to make sure that you look after me by following a few simple rules:
- Eat well
- Eat little and often (healthy food only)
- Drink lots of water throughout the day
Feed me and my buddies properly and we will keep you fit, healthy and full of energy. Remember, we will be your buddies for life!
Exercising and eating good food regularly keeps me looking big and strong, otherwise I’ll start shrinking. I will get smaller and thinner and won’t be able to burn up those extra calories.
You need to make sure I stay healthy so that YOU stay healthy. Please eat properly as too many bad things will do this to me …
I stop your blood sugar from being too high or too low. I like to be fed small amounts of healthy food regularly so that I can help you to stay fit and happy!
