Thank you for your interest in nutrition literacy!
Life Time Foundation’s mission is to help schools eliminate the Harmful 7 ingredients from the food they serve so every child receives the healthy food they deserve. The Harmful 7 includes Trans Fats & Hydrogenated Oils, High-Fructose Corn Syrup, Hormones & Antibiotics, Processed & Artificial Sweeteners, Artificial Colors & Flavors, Artificial Preservatives, and Bleached Flour. We believe in removing the Harmful 7 because processed, artificial and unhealthy foods negatively impact children in countless ways. We also believe in the importance of educating children, parents and the community on making informed healthy choices and being active every day.
With this in mind, our complimentary nutrition curriculum for 1st – 4th grade students consists of four four-minute nutrition videos and one two-minute physical activity video. The nutrition videos teach children where food comes from, the benefits of each food group, and healthy choices they can make in each food group.
The program also includes teacher guides and parent support guides to extend learning to the home.
