Healthy Teachers Inspire Healthy Kids!

Teachers with more knowledge about nutrition and healthy eating can not only lead happier, healthier lives–they can be stronger role models for our kids and be better advocates for school wellness policies.

This free two-hour nutrition and cooking class is designed to transform staff wellbeing through inspiration. It is a fun, interactive class that breaks down simple nutrition into digestible information that everyone can use.

This class covers:

  • Basic principles of eating a whole foods diet
  • Tips for shopping economically while still making healthy choices
  • Healthy cooking demonstrations, recipes and samples!

This is not a diet program, but an open concept to basic nutrition that fits everyone!
