Eat Move Win: Free, Online Nutrition Lesson Plan for High School

Eat Move Win  is a five-lesson online program that empowers students to take small steps to better eating and healthy habits. The program presents expert, research-based, nutrition information and helps students change their long-term eating behaviors for a healthy lifestyle.

Eat Move Win grounds students in real-world nutrition challenges about weight, breakfast, sleep, and sports and engages them with videos, small- and large-group discussions, interactivities, and easy-to-use personal logs. Auto-graded assessments and a performance-based culminating lesson allow students to demonstrate their understanding of optimal nutrition.

Flexible and delivered online, Eat Move Win  stands alone or can be integrated with your existing lessons. The teacher-facilitated lessons can be adapted for flipped classrooms or used in distance learning situations. Optional built-in extensions allow a more in-depth look at nutrition topics or flexibility for accelerated students or extra credit.

Teachers and students agree that Eat Move Win  is engaging and extremely effective in providing the knowledge and framework needed to make healthy choices.
