We strive to improve the health of our community by collaborating with teachers to increase the nutrition education in classrooms by using research-based, pilot-tested curricula that has been correlated to the California Content Standards.
The objectives of our program include:
- Increasing consumption of all five food groups with an emphasis on whole grains, fruits, vegetables, and lean meats at every meal.
- Increasing physical activity among children to 60 minutes every day.
- Increasing awareness in our community about the importance of proper nutrition and physical activity on lifelong health.
