"We sincerely believe music and story books are an under-utilized resource in nutrition and health education. Partnering music and story time grabs children’s interests and provides an outlet for high spirits and creative energy."

Jenny Steinhaus, M.S., L.N., CEO Nutrition in Action



Nutrition in Action takes the guess work out of nutrition education by offering educational materials that are grab-and-go for educators.  Nutrition in Action is a creative, fun, and innovative way for children to learn about nutrition and physical activity while meeting school  Content and Achievement Standards and CDC School Health Education Characteristics of an Effective Health Education Curriculum.
