“Food is Elementary is the most creative, organized, and crucial program I have ever been involved in. With this curriculum, children not only learn to cook and eat healthy, but are also exposed to so many aspects of different cultures. I love it!”
“My experience in this class was wonderful. I learned how to eat healthier. I learned information about different cultures and the food they eat. I learned about were vitamins go and the difference between foods (vegetables/fruits). I now eat more healthier foods. My body feels like it has more energy.”
“As a parent, it’s been a pleasure watching my boys become more interested in food preparation at home. They consult recipes now, help shop and get dinner started on a regular basis and think ahead to the week’s meals.”
“Working in the classroom with the children was so exciting and inspiring! To see them excited about learning about different types of fats and what they do to the body… vitamins and minerals…cultural foods…and more! And, the retention from one class to the next was great evidence that they are really interested in the information and using it…many of them proudly proclaim that they are teaching their parents how to eat healthy too!”
“Working with the Food is Elementary (FIE) program for my [public health] practicum project was a very positive experience…I learned how to conduct a research study from beginning to end and use the findings to make recommendations on how to improve the FIE program. FIE leaders were very helpful and…very knowledgeable about implementing a nutrition education program in schools.”
We would love to help you start a Food is Elementary program at your school or organization.
