SINGLE USER - “You Are What You Eat” Curriculum
The “You Are What You Eat” (YAWYE) curriculum addresses 10 pertinent topics related to student health and their food environment. It emphasizes choosing “real” food in every aspect of life, including when playing sports or being active. Students learn about food culture and history, meals and snacks, healthier dining out choices, the importance of fruits and vegetables and reading labels.
As students go through the course, they learn about how their food choices impact their health and the world around them. An optional incorporated activity is to have students complete a personal wellness plan that integrates “real” food nutrition with physical activity and setting positive emotional habits (e.g. reducing stress).
This curriculum is aligned with the 4 C’s of 21st Century learning skills; 1) Critical thinking, 2) Collaboration, 3) Communication and 4) Creativity.
