We are celebrating Nutrition Month 2019 at Kids Eat Smart NL by unlocking the potential of food to fuel, discover, prevent, heal and bring us together.
At our Kids Eat Smart Clubs, we promote the potential of food each and every day!
Fuel: Stay energized by planning nutritious snacks into your day.
Discover: Foster healthy eating habits in children by teaching them to shop and cook.
Prevent: Understand how food can help prevent chronic diseases like type 2 diabetes and heart disease.
Heal: Learn how food can promote healing and how dietitians work in health care teams to make a difference.
Bring us together: Enjoy the benefits of bringing families and friends together with food
This years theme encompasses many goals of our Kids Eat Smart Clubs. Serving a healthy breakfast each school day allows us to fuel our students, allows kids to discover new foods and develop healthy eating habits, prevent chronic disease by providing healthy foods, learn how food can promote healing, and most importantly brings our students together each morning with friends to socialize and enjoy a healthy meal to start their day.
