I used to teach 7th and 8th grade cooking and nutrition classes and this would’ve been great to use! I was surprised at how little about nutrition even kids that age knew. I guess now I’ll have to teach my own kids using these ideas! Thanks for sharing!

what great tools these would have been for my health students! I like some of the nutrition lessons on p.e. central too…ever checked that one out? I LOVE their nutrition and fitness lessons that they use in one…like healthy foods relay, red light/green light with healthy foods…lessons like that!
