Classroom Learning: A healthy approach to teaching

If you are a teacher, we think you’ll find the Classroom Learning action area useful because it provides plenty of information to deliver nutrition education to your students.

We know for a fact that healthy kids are more likely to be engaged in their learning, achieve success and attend school.

When they learn about good nutrition from an early age, it makes a lasting contribution to good health throughout life.

Kids who eat well are more likely to be engaged in their learning, achieve success and attend school.
