Pick a Better Snack

Pick A Better Snack and ACT is a nine session program that brings nutrition educators into kindergarten through sixth grade classrooms. They share nutrition and health lesson, lead a literacy activity and introduce students to one new fruit or vegetable each session, and allow them to try it.

The messages taught are centered on the food pyramid, understanding the importance of each of the food groups, recognizing the value of daily exercise, and deciphering between all the time foods and sometimes foods. ISU Extension then provides classroom teachers with various activities and ideas to reinforce what is being taught in other parts of the school day.
