NEAT - NUTRITIONAL EDUCATION AND TRAINING
Nutrition Education and Training (NEAT) Project
A nutrition education program, overseen by a registered dietitian, has been implemented at each school.
Our staff provides nutrition education in a variety of ways through out the school year.
We encourage our students to make healthy food choices by teaching them about the food guide pyramid in a fun, interactive and applicable way.
We incorporate nutrition education on the serving line, on bulletin boards, with classroom visits, in print, and by attending school wide functions.
Please contact our registered dietition Taylor Blake at firstname.lastname@example.org
