The Child Health Promotion Research Centre (CHPRC) at Edith Cowan University was contracted to develop, promote and evaluate K-10 food and nutrition curriculum support materials as part of this program.
Whilst food and nutrition is traditionally taught in health and technology classes, promotion of healthy eating has application in all learning areas. Teachers can help children understand, as well as motivate, their interest in healthy eating. Most important, teachers can provide a learning environment that develops children’s knowledge, skills and enthusiasm for making healthy choices.
