Nutrition Curriculum 6-8 Grades

Thirty 20-minute Grades 6-8 lessons integrate core subjects like math, language arts and science. Nutrition education lessons meet Centers for Disease Control HECAT indentified outcomes.  Every classroom lesson includes a Move and Learn activity to enhance learning and add more minutes of movement to the day.

Kids learn skills to build healthy habits for better health and academic success!  Healthy breakfast, snack, beverage, portion size, fruit and veggie, active play, energy balance, and food skills lessons are hands-on.
