This guide provides a nutrition education program for elementary school students that spans kindergarten through Grade 3 as well as providing activities for specific levels. Nutrition education objectives are stated for each grade level: (1) kindergarten--students will become familiar with and motivated to eat a variety of foods; (2) grade one--students will appreciate the importance of nutritious foods to promote growth; (3) grade two--students will recognize that choosing appropriate foods and being physically fit will benefit their health; and (4) grade three--students will understand that food choices are influenced by physical, cultural, and economic factors. An explanation is given of what the students should understand about the objective for each level. Class activities for the kindergarten level attempt to: (1) familiarize students with the physical characteristics of foods; (2) introduce students to different nutritious foods; and (3) help teach students that some foods are better than others for health. A supplement to this guide contains worksheets, letters for parents, and recipes. (JD)
