Chefs or restaurant owners from the community come to the school and share their favourite personal recipes and nutrition information with students. They also share ways to make decisions regarding more and less healthy options.
Create a bulletin board that includes a local map. Identify locations where food is available within your community and where supports for healthy eating can be found.
