Children don’t create bad eating habits themselves, they learn them from the adults in their lives. With this in mind, FoodFight has created a unique food-education curriculum that educates teachers on healthy eating, as well as educating children on how to analyze food labels, differentiate portion sizes and ultimately make healthy choices.
Since FoodFight was last featured, they’ve expanded their curriculum into schools in Los Angeles, Colorado, Texas, Boston and the NY Tri-State area. As they continue to work with schools to prioritize time for healthy-eating education, a vote from you will help them continue their mission to end Childhood Obesity.
