Hello Students and Parents/Guardians,

This December the UMASS Nutrition Program will be coming in for the first two weeks to present information for each grade level on the importance of nutrition. Included in the information program are games and activities which students will be involved in to reinforce the information given.

The last week before the holiday season we will be playing holiday games.

Here are a couple examples of what students of what students will be learning about.

Food provides our bodies with the energy, protein, essential fats, vitamins and minerals to live, grow and function properly. We need a wide variety of different foods to provide the right amounts of nutrients for good health.


Extra credit question: Students 3-5 write a paragraph of about something they learned in the nutrition program. Grades K-2 write a sentence about nutrition.
