"Produce for Kids" provides information and activities to promote healthy eating habits for children. There are online games like Curious George Juggling Produce which includes counting and healthy eating concepts. There are also a variety of kid-friendly recipes to try! There are links for Kids, Grown-Ups, and Teachers. The Teachers link includes lesson plans, activities, printables, and more. The "Kids" link includes about 10 interactives all related to good nutrition (and even some basic math skills). Many of the lesson plans and interactives are from PBS.com and may be better suited in low to mid-elementary grades.
In the ClassroomThis site could be used in the elementary class setting as part of a nutritional unit. Share the "Kids Only" section on your interactive whiteboard or projector and allow students to explore on their own. Try out some of the ready to go lesson plans and other activities.
Recipes included on the site would make great classroom projects or additions to the family and consumer science programs of the early middle level grades. Include this site as a reference when middle schoolers do nutrition units in health or FCS class, especially for weaker readers or ELL students.
