Show Me Nutrition (SMN) is a six-week program for youth from Pre-K through eighth grade. Participants will have the opportunity to engage in age appropriate, interactive, hands-on activities that promote good eating habits, positive body image, physical activity and food safety. Through each interesting and fun nutrition class, students will gain the skills necessary to make healthy lifestyle choices. This six series program covers eight different lessons throughout the school year, and is taught in your schools classroom.
SMN is taught at schools where at least 50 percent of students are eligible for the National School Lunch Program. If you are interested in SMN at your school, contact your local MSU Extension office.
