This interactive presentation will guide students through the components of a healthy meal. Our educators will give students an introduction to portions, serving size, and calories. Learn the difference between carbs, fats, and proteins. This program is a great way to get kids thinking about their food choices and the science behind what we eat! Students will use their skills in math, language arts, and their critical thinking skills as they interact with our educators during this new program.
