Youth Nutrition in a School Near You!
The Youth Nutrition Education Program is now in full swing. Nutrition-focused programming is being taught in many qualifying Lane County schools. The lesson series are delivered in the classroom and in after-school programs. Nutrition messages focus on the USDA MyPyramid, the 2005 Dietary Guidelines for Americans, and the importance of physical activity and food safety. All classes incorporate hands-on, interactive lessons, many of which include snack-making activities that reinforce messages covered in each lesson.
Curriculum varies according to grade level.
