Show Me Nutrition (SMN) is a nutrition education program for youth. There are lessons for grades Pre-K through eighth grade. Participants engage in age appropriate, interactive activities. The program promotes healthy eating, positive body image, physical activity and food safety.
Through each interesting and fun nutrition class, students gain the skills necessary to make healthy lifestyle choices. There are six classes in the series. The duration of each class is flexible depending on your needs. The program supports Michigan Educational Standards and grade level expectations for math and language arts, where appropriate.
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.
