Teaching children about nutrition

Food is Elementary is a groundbreaking curriculum that teaches students about nutrition though hands-on positive experiences. The Food Studies Institute recognizes that the major health problems in the US are directly related to the typical American diet. Young children are suffering from diseases that once were seen mainly in adults, such as diabetes, obesity and heart disease.

Surprisingly, the youth of today are the first generation predicted to have a lower life expectancy than their parents; and the fact that the U.S. spends more on health care than any other industrialized country has raised the flag. The Food Studies Institute offers a solution and that is to teach children healthy eating habits in classrooms by educating them about the relationship between food and health, providing them with food preparations skills through hands-on interactive experiences, and introducing plant-based entrees at their schools.
