Magic of 5-A-Day - Camps

Magic of 5-A-Day is a 45 minute interactive camp show, designed to promote good nutrition and exercise. Brian Richards brings the importance of nutrition together with a little magic that will captivate your audience and leave them laughing and smiling throughout his whole performance. This nutrition show is unlike any you have seen before!

With the aid of magic, comedy, audience participation, and powerful visual aids, your campers and staff will learn...

  • Why we need to eat at least 5 servings of fruits and veggies every day
  • How the colors of fruits and veggies are good for different parts of our bodies
  • Why balance and moderation is so important
  • How to know the difference between a "sometimes food" and an "all-the-time food."
  • And much more...

Plus, your campers will take the 5-A-Day Challenge and pledge to eat their 5-A-Day every day.

Magic of 5-A-Day is presented by comic-magician Brian Richards, one of the most humorous assembly performers in the country. Using the perfect blend of entertainment and educational content, Brian's shows are loved by kids and staff alike. Though they will laugh and be fooled by his tricks, your camp will also get excited about good nutrition.

  • Brian did a marvelous show. He was funny, kept the children interested, taught a valuable life lesson on good nutrition, and stayed within our time constraints. My son bought raisins with his lunch that day - the first time ever! And he came home later that day searching for bananas, and at dinner requested an apple! That was clearly a result of the message Brian shared in his program. Excellent show.

  • The children enjoyed the assembly very much. There was a lot of student interaction which they all enjoyed. Even the teachers and administration were impressed by how Brian was able to keep the students attention at all times. We will definitely look into having more of his programs in the future.

  • Brian used a combination of magic, humor and interactivity with the audience to get his very serious message across to our elementary school students.  The students were hysterical most of the time, but they understood the  importance of eating at least 5 servings of fruits and vegetables every day. He was a big hit!
