In response to mandated wellness policies, a variety of programs are available to assist schools in providing nutrition education to youth. Health fairs, afterschool programming, presentations, cooking demonstrations, and food tastings are just a few examples. Please inquire if you are interested in customized programming for school-aged youth.
We have displays and educational materials that would be appropriate for school functions, such as a Health Fair, Open House, PTA, or Fall Festival. We can offer displays, presentations, interactive activities, and provide cooking demonstrations or food tastings, when appropriate.
Some examples of the displays we have to offer are: Think Your Drink, Jump Start Your Day with Breakfast, Boost Your Bones with Calcium Rich Foods,Vary your Veggies, Focus on Fruits, One Great Tray for the Best School Day, Choose MyPlate: Let’s Eat for the Health of It!, Be Food Safe
An educational, interactive exhibit targeting third graders across Cape Cod. The spring months of March and April are an ideal time to offer this program as it coincides with National Nutrition Month and many other wellness activities offered in our local elementary schools. Body Walk is a wonderful way for students to have fun as they learn about health, nutrition, and physical activity.
