Nutritional Presentations

NEW FOR 2020!

We now offer FOUR interactive nutrition presentations to students and teachers throughout the province. Each presentation is based off of the recently released Canada’s Food Guide.

“Healthy Eating Everyday” (Kindergarten)

Discover which foods and beverages help us learn, play and grow. Activities are used to help identify which foods and beverages are meant for every day, and which should be occasional treats.

“Healthy Foods, Healthy Bodies” (Grades 1 and 2)

Learn the benefits of consuming healthy foods and beverages, using Canada’s Food Guide. Then, practice identifying and properly categorizing the foods and beverages on Canada’s Food Guide’s Eat Well Plate.

“My Healthy Plate” (Grades 3-4)

Spot differences between whole and processed foods, then learn how to read and understand food labels. Students will practice making healthy meals and snacks using Canada’s Food Guide.

“Healthy Eating: Know All About It” (Grades 5-6)

Learn how our food environment influences what we eat and drink. Students will read food labels and use Canada’s Food Guide to recognize and develop healthy eating patterns to make their own healthy action eating plan.
