Ideas for Health & Wellness Contest! Tips for Nutrition Education in the Classroom

August 01, 2011 | Written By:

Schools across the country are taking a new look at wellness and working to create a school culture where messages about healthy eating and physical activity are a regular part of the school day. To support this effort, teachers are working to bring nutrition education messages into a variety of lessons and are creating innovative ways to share lessons about balanced eating and healthy habits.

This week, as part of our Ideas for Health & Wellness Contest, Healthy Schools Campaign asks:

How do you make messages about healthy eating part of the classroom?
