Nutrition in the Classroom

Students will be provided with basic nutrition education including healthy eating habits using the USDA MyPlate model.  Students will participate in a 30 minute class discussion which will address the five food groups, foods included in each food group, how many servings of each food group we should have in a day, and basic health benefits of each food group (calcium for strong bones).  Additionally, nutrition in the classroom will also incorporate several fun and interactive games designed to increase each student's knowledge of nutrition.  All discussions and activities are tailored to each grade level.
