3rd Grade
Healthy food is fuel for the body! Active Eating challenges kids to consider their eating habits through positive reinforcement.

The activities are divided into the following categories:

Studies have shown that children who eat breakfast had significant gains in overall standardized test scores and displayed improvement in math, reading, and vocabulary scores over those who had no breakfast.
Almost 30% of schools serve lunches that do not meet nutrient guidelines for protein, vitamins, and minerals. Educate your students about healthy lunch choices in the cafeteria and at home.
Kids that regularly eat dinner with their family are less likely to develop unhealthy eating habits, like skipping meals, or eating disorders, like anorexia. Frequent family meals are also associated with better grades. Encourage your students to play active roles in planning healthy dinners with their families.
The percentage of children who eat snacks between regular meals has exploded to 98% . Kids are more likely to choose sugary fruit drinks and high-calorie junk food than healthy snacks like low-fat milk, fruits, or vegetables. Encourage your students to make healthy food choices throughout the day.
