Nutrition Education for Teachers
This program is needed. My daughter’s teacher this year tells her kids her favorite treat is milky way candy bars and she likes to eat them every week.
The other two years she had very health minded teachers who encouraged healthy snacks and mid day stretching.
Healthy role models inspire change.
“Educators are some of the most important role models for our children. Whole Kids Foundation is piloting nutrition and cooking education for teachers with the goal of improving their nutrition, health and wellness. This pilot is taking place in… Austin, Texas, with the Austin Independent School District. (They) hope to roll out resources more broadly in 2012.”
