Nutrition Topic of the Month Bulletin Board

For the past three years, Imlay City Middle School has created a monthly nutrition topic bulletin board. It is prominently displayed next to our Fuel Up To Play 60 pledge banner, and near the front entrance of the school to promote visibility. Our student body expressed a strong interest in nutrition education on specific topics, such as sports nutrition or the nutrient content of various fruits & vegetables. Our student team conducted a school-wide survey that revealed six different topics that the student body found most interesting, taking into account current seasons. Throughout the school year, the student team assembled a new nutrition topic board for every month. Many students have stated that they enjoy reading all the new information each month and have learned a lot about each nutrition related topic. Students have also stated that this readily available information has changed what snacks they bring to school as well as how they eat at home!

How did students and adults work together as a team?

Our success can be contributed to collaborative efforts between our student team and the adult program advisors. Taking into account everyone's ideas and letting each individual contribute to the project was an integral part of our success plan.
