New Let's Eat Healthy Curriculum for K, 1st and 2nd Grades!
New in 2021, the updated curriculum uses the latest nutrition guidance and shorter, turnkey lessons that incorporate SEL for easy educator use!
Free for California Educators!
Revised in 2021, the new Kindergarten, 1st and 2nd grade curriculum have tons of new features including:
Shorter Lessons - 5 engaging, flexible and fun lessons help students build the skills and knowledge to practice healthy behaviors like making healthy food choices, drinking better beverages, understanding the importance of breakfast and snacks and understanding our food system.
Social and Emotional Learning - Highlighted and embedded throughout the program are social and emotional learning (SEL) skills to help identify, learn and practice social awareness, relationship skills and responsible decision-making. SEL competencies support academic success as well as mental and physical health, starting early and practicing often allows children to master these competencies.
Fun Food Group Characters - characters guide children through the nutrition concepts and provide a tangible way to identify with abstract concepts like health and beneficial nutrients provided from healthy eating patterns.
It integrates into literally every single subject. My students love the new food group characters. They laugh, giggle and have so much fun learning their names and cute pictures. I love how the new curriculum is so engaging and so fun for kids to learn.
