Healthy Kids Initiative

Why is Nutrition in the Elementary School so IMPORTANT?

  • Kids need a variety of calories and nutrients for energy, focus, brain development, and overall growth
  • Picky eating leads to limited nutrient intake and deficiencies
  • Statistics show one in three children are obese
  • Disordered eating patterns typically develop during the teen years starting as early as late elementary school
  • Kids have more choices when it comes to their diets in school (selecting lunch options and snacks)
  • Kids are starting to become more independent at home by preparing their own after-school snacks
  • Nutrition education may not be part of the current health curriculum

Eat the Rainbow Assembly

This interactive lecture allows children to participate in categorizing foods as "everyday" foods or "once-in-a-while" foods, identify the parts of the body that are impacted by nutrients, and personally create healthy after-school snacks (recipes included.)
