FOOD FUEL

GRADES 6-8 • ALISSA MONTELEONE

Nutrition made fun! Learning the connection between what we eat and how we feel empowers you to make healthy choices when it comes to food. Each week will focus on a system of the body and how what we eat affects how it functions. Participants will learn the role of micronutrients and how you can use this information to impact cognitive and physical performance. In the first class, each person will identify a specific improvement they want to experience through the foods they eat and keep track of their progress (i.e. more energy, clearer skin, a strong heart, how to make fun treats, or learn to like broccoli). All students will complete their own recipe journal to take home at the last class.
