NRPA’s Foods of the Month Curriculum


The National Recreation and Parks Association (NRPA) recently released their Foods of the Month Curriculum. It is a free, downloadable, and evidence-based nutrition education curriculum for out-of-school time programs. The food-based curriculum highlights two healthy foods or food groups each month to inspire youth to learn more about healthy eating and to try new foods. Each month contains a suite of materials including lesson plan guides (for grades K-2 and 3-5), posters, coloring and activity pages, newsletters with healthy recipes, experiential activities, USDA and MyPlate resources, physical activity lessons and more.
