Nutrition in the Classroom

These virtual lesson will provide students with basic nutrition education including healthy eating habits using the USDA MyPlate model.  They 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.
