(2B) Super Hero Nutrition for Elementary Aged Children (Room: Ironwood)

Apr 30, 2018 3:45pm - Apr 30, 2018 5:00pm
Session Type: Presentation


Kathy Parry, Owner and Founder, Wellness Road Trip/ Kathy Parry, LLC

Ask a child who their favorite super hero is and you will get immediate and passionate responses. Ask them what their favorite super food is and you will get blank stares. This session will provide a fool-proof template to engage and teach elementary aged children key nutritional information, while having fun! Kathy Parry will outline how to approach school and program administrators about nutrition presentations so attendees can get in front of this critical audience. Learn how you can engage students with exercises that speak their language, games that are interactive, and language they can use to help their parents and caregivers understand what they have learned.

Learning Objectives:

  1. Create a plan to meet with administrators and share the importance of scheduling nutrition programming
  2. Develop their own program complete with activities, games and take-aways for the children
  3. Increase awareness of the needs of low-income individuals and nutritional education within the family unit/caregivers
