PE and Cafeteria Work together to teach Nutrition
I am teaching nutrition in PE right now. Each week we talk about a new food group. Our Cafeteria Manager comes in each week and talks about that food group with the students. She also brings in some display items that I show each class. These of examples of the particular food group that we are talking about. She also brings in some samples for kids to try. We talk a lot about good choices in eating versus bad choices.

What improvements have you seen at your school?

We have seen some amazing changes! We have many more students eating breakfast and drinking milk at school. We have students talking about wise food choices. We have students making nutrition choices to help them be better athletes.
