4-H 6830L • Revised February 2008

Welcome to Start Smart Eating & Reading. This curriculum was prepared jointly by the 4-H Youth Development and Family & Community Development programs of the Oregon State University Extension Service and the Oregon Department of Education.

Start Smart Eating & Reading combines nutrition education and literacy to help K-2 students discover the importance of breakfast through reading and discussion of various children's books. Each of the five learning modules offers a no-cook food activity along with other worksheets to reinforce messages about smart eating, while parent newsletters help deliver messages to the home.

Lesson plans, worksheets, and parent newsletter are available for free download.
