Happy Kids Nutrition Academy offers many different classes in nutrition, such as sports nutrition, meal planning for plant-based eaters, food labeling, food groups, GMOs, and food science. Good nutrition and healthy habits begin at a young age. Our mission is to inspire kids to live a healthier lifestyle and to learn about nutrition early so that they can utilize that knowledge in their adult life. Our teachers are all trained in teaching classes in body image, food science, agriculture, and GMOs. For teacher bios, please see our organization profile.
Learners will need a binder, pen/pencil, and grocery supply list (A PDF copy will be posted to the classroom). Learners will receive notes/handouts for each lesson from the instructor so purchasing a textbook is not necessary.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
50 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 1 - 2 hours per week outside of class.
Parents should be close by to help learners with the use of kitchen appliances (if needed) and assist in food prep such as cutting, measuring, etc. Supplemental labs or other homework can be given to those who have food allergies or do not have the required ingredients.
