Tips from our team!

Repeating healthy eating activities will affect students’ habits over the long term—planning a number of small activities throughout the year is better than doing one activity during Nutrition Month!


Do you teach in an underprivileged area and find it hard to talk about breakfast when many students don’t get breakfast? By taking a positive and non-judgmental approach that focuses on discovery and having fun, you will plant the seeds. Don’t get discouraged—they may reap the benefits much later!
