Nutrition is essential to health.  The K-4 National Science Education Standards from the National Research Council state that “Students should understand how the body uses food and how various foods contribute to health. Recommendations for good nutrition include eating a variety of foods, eating less sugar, and eating less fat.”

“Perhaps due to my own musical preferences, I vastly underestimated how well “Veggie Raps” would be received as part of the Healthy Choices program at Bridge Point. I’d assumed maybe 30 or so kids would want to perform broccoli-ish poetry in front of the 700-strong student body. I was off by a mile! Over 100 students performed veggie raps!”
