Parents Teacher Partnership
We know parents need to be involved if we are truly going to be successful in education children about healthy habits.
The website provides tools to create learning partnerships with parents. It is only through a team approach with nutrition education inside the home and away from home where children will have the best chance of learning healthy habits that will stay with them throughout a lifetime.
We believe in treating the parents and the child as one unit. We are committed to creating tools
that are interactive and designed to help make healthier choices for the family.
We have a Family Health and Healthy Tips section.
We communicate a new theme message to both the children and the parents every month.
You will find parents handouts to send home to help reinforce what a child is learning in your nutrition program.
All our material is available in English and Spanish
If you work directly with parents, you may want to share some online nutrition resources. We have tools designed for parents. You will find that we create two versions of every tool: one for the parents and one for the child! We made parent's tools fun and colorful too so that they can use these nutrition tools with their children. And, let's face it, adults like to have fun too!.
Keep parents involved in your nutrition education program.
