What is it about?

Nutrition education for elementary students is important for their health. We show that our free resource is just as effective or in some cases more effective than a costly commercial nutritional education resource.

Why is it important?

Poor diet, health, and overweight negatively impact the academic performance and well-being of elementary students. Our nutrition education resource can help improve quality of life and it is paired with academic content so it can be used in the classroom without reducing instructional time.


The most innovative aspect of our nutrition education resource is pairing grade-specific academic content with the nutrition education lessons so teachers can include nutrition education in their weekly lessons plans but not lose important instructional time with the students.
