Working with School-Way Cafe certified staff we will be using a STEM approach to improve student knowledge regarding nutrition, through food tasting/cooking and having fun. Improving students science scores is a part of our school improvement goals. We will provide a pre-test and post-test using FTAIC curriculum Food for Nutrition, menu planning and preparation, and my plate (4 food groups).

This will be an Winter 8 week program from October 2017- December 2017 using our 4th grade students from our after school program. Most students are low SES status and will benefit from Nutrition Education. This program will also utilize some of the produce grown "Edible Garden's" program at Sugar Mill Elementary.
