Wanted: Your brilliant lesson plan submissions for Rev Your Bev Week 2024!


ECE educators – We want your water lessons for Rev Your Bev 2024! As you know, sugar sweetened beverages remain a key contributor to childhood overweight and obesity. Early care programs can make a difference by serving only healthy beverages and teaching children all about water – even our littlest learners benefit from healthy habits early! 

Virginia’s Child Care Aware of Virginia Network has been proud to support Virginia’s Rev Your Bev (RYB) campaign promoting healthy beverage habits to children, families, and staff.  

Educators will receive up to $500 if their lesson plan is selected by the Virginia Foundation for Healthy Youth, the RYB ECE hosts. The winning lesson(s) will be published (and credited!) in this year’s statewide Rev Your Bev ECE kit! Deadline for lessons is December 1, 2023.

Lesson plans can promote water drinking, and water exploration in age-appropriate ways. Lesson plan entries must use the simple, one-page Rev Your Bev ECE lesson plan template found here and submitted through the website OR sent tohrobbins@vfhy.org.

Please contact Hannah Robbins Bruce at hrobbins@vfhy.org with any questions.
