Nutrition and Physical Activity Lessons

Eat Well & Keep Moving’s multidisciplinary school- and community-wide approach would not be possible without the investment of teachers. The classroom lessons on nutrition and physical activity are the cornerstone of the Eat Well & Keep Moving program.

Using a multidisciplinary teaching approach, the classroom lessons equip students with the knowledge and skills they need to choose a nutritious diet and be physically active both now and throughout their lives. Developed with elementary school teachers, these lessons are meant to be integrated into core subject areas, follow a format familiar to educators, meet educational standards, require minimal teacher training, and are easy to use:
