Nutrition education is an important way to encourage healthy eating, build good lifelong habits, and combat our State, and our country’s, childhood obesity epidemic.  Ideally, Nutrition Education should link what children are eating at school and in out-of-school time programming, with what they are learning about in the classroom.

Best practice Nutrition Education links research, theory and practice; and focuses on behavior change.  Below is a list of high quality nutrition education resources that have been reviewed and recommended by a State team of experts. This is not an all-inclusive list, but includes many of the best free and low-cost Nutrition Education resources offered in Michigan and nationally.   Use these resources to provide and improve Nutrition Education and to create an implementation plan for the Nutrition Education portion of your Local Wellness Policy.
