This program is called Food for Life. Food for Life is a nutrition education and cooking class that
discusses how diet can affect your health and help prevent chronic diseases.
The objectives of this class are:
Learn the important role that diet plays in chronic disease
Identify the four food groups
Understand the roles of micro and macro nutrients on health
learn the importance of eating a rainbow of fruits and vegetables
Learn about foods that are full of vitamins and minerals
Your child will be asked to fill out a questionnaire that asks about their nutrition knowledge before and after the class. We will be collecting data on your child's baseline knowledge of nutrition and how many servings of fruits and vegetables they eat daily. After the class, this knowledge will be reassessed. Our goal is to help teach children the many benefits of eating a healthy diet which can lead to overall good health.
Your child's name will not be used in the collection of data from the questionnaires. If your child wishes to participate, they will be assigned a unique number and all data collected will only be associated with that number.
Your child's name can be entered into a drawing for a free one week food delivery system from purple carrot. Purple Carrot is a meal kit prescription service that delivers all ingredients needed to prepared meals for the week.
