Nutrition to Grow On

Nutrition to Grow On

Gardens not only teach children where their food comes from but also expose them to a variety of fresh fruits and vegetables. Nutrition to Grown On was developed to provide teachers with the necessary tools to bring life to this concept.

Nutrition to Grow On is an innovative curriculum created by CNS Co-Director Dr. Sheri Zidenberg-Cherr and Jennifer Morris for grades four through six that offers teachers a direct link between the garden and nutrition education. Nine lessons are designed to teach children and their families about nutrition by relating each lesson to a garden activity. The curriculum uses the garden to integrate disciplines, including science, mathematics, language arts, history, environmental studies, nutrition and health, while reinforcing the California academic content standards. This is a free, downloadable resource.
