School Nutrition Education Resources
Teaching children about the benefits of eating a variety of fruits and vegetables is more important now than ever before given the national obesity epidemic. To support educators, Produce for Better Health Foundation (PBH) has designed curricula and other helpful kids' teaching tools to help students establish smart and healthy fruit and vegetable eating habits for a lifetime.
Education plays a key role in encouraging childrens healthy habits. PBH offers easy-to-learn, easy-to-do classroom lessons to teach kids that fruits and vegetables can provide fuel, help to control and maintain a healthy weight, and may protect them from illness.
We have assembled the basic tools to help educators get started. We also encourage a partnership with the schools foodservice staff and with local supermarkets to that your students can turn nutrition knowledge into real-world practice.
