Steps to Health’s 3rd Grade School program serves 3rd graders across North Carolina.
The program consists of 9 sessions that are designed to educate and inspire young children to eat smart. Hands-on activities, games, and physical activity are incorporated into each lesson. Each 30-45 minute lesson includes a taste test of either a snack the student can make after-school or a healthy meal parents can make for dinner. All participants are awarded a certificate of participation at the completion of the program. Recipes and nutrition and physical activity handouts are sent home to the parents. Evaluation of the lessons include a pre and post survey, and feedback from parents and teachers.
