The Nutrition for Kids program is being developed to impact and improve all children’s health through education and heightened nutrition focused awareness. Our goal is to provide the information and resources necessary to help children and their families to make better lifestyle choices, leading to improved health and quality of life. N4Ks will be an online learning platform focused on providing accurate, up-to-date nutrition education to children and teens in grades K through 12. The curriculum, which is grouped into age-appropriate levels (K-2, 3-5, 6-8, 9-12), will exceed current school standards.

It seems today that both children and adults are misguided and confused about what they “should” and “shouldn’t” eat. Currently, most of us get our nutrition information from TV commercials and the Internet – daily sound bites that are incomplete, contradictory and confusing. Our children get some exposure to health and wellness initiatives through the public school system. These initiatives provide basic nutrition education and stress the importance of exercise. In addition, the Food and Nutrition departments of many school districts are headed by Registered Dietitian Nutritionists who are implementing healthier school menu options. However, the children who are benefiting from these programs have no educational support to help them understand how to make important dietary and activity choices in their own lives.

Nutrition for Kids is being developed to provide a better, more comprehensive nutritional education option for children and their families. And because we also understand that educators need reliable and accurate resources to teach nutrition, our program is being developed not only so that students can work independently through the various lessons and activities, but also to serve as a teaching platform for educators working in group settings. The Nutrition for Kids program is designed to be an ongoing, accurate and reliable source of nutrition information and lifestyle support for the community as a whole. Please support us in our efforts to bring this much needed resource to life.
