The program teaches children what ingredients are in that blue box of macaroni and cheese and how important it is to eat five fruits and veggies a day.

Bobby Banana Helathy School program

Debbie Banana teams up with her friend Bobbie Banana and the Crazy Mad Scientist to bring the children an exciting school assembly and wellness program.

Bobbie provides the music and lively video. Deb Banana brings the concept of 5 fruits and vegetables a day to the children and the crazy Mad Scientist shows the children what all those chemicals mean.

The program often times is paid for by the school’s health and wellness grants and brings the students a new understanding of what whole food really is.

This is not your typical boring healthy school assembly!!
