Nutrition Month is right around the corner, and we’re already getting great material requests from health educators.
Mary Therese Maslanka, RD, LDN, recently wrote to us to see if we could craft a few handouts that kids could color for fun. The handouts needed to feature the March 2014 Nutrition Month theme, “Enjoy the taste of eating right.” We were thrilled to oblige, especially when we learned that the handouts are part of a poster project for kids in kindergarten through second grade. The kids each get a handout with health messages on it, which they can then color in. What a great way to teach vital health and nutrition messages!
We decided that Mary’s idea was too wonderful not to share, and so now we’re passing the handouts on to you. Feel free to download and print as many as you’d like. And let us know if there’s anything that we can make for you.
What are you waiting for? Get the handouts now!
