4th Grade
Over half of the TV commercials aimed at children encourage unhealthy food choices like candy, soda, fast food, and sugary cereals. We need to fight against these marketing campaigns by promoting dynamic physical activities and teaching nutrition in engaging ways.

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
