“It has been such a joy to see Nutrition 101: Choose Life! come to life in our co-op. The kids have greatly enjoyed the fun and varied science experiments and the delicious cooking activities. They also have learned a great deal about their bodies and healthy eating habits. The most important thing my own child has learned is that healthy foods don’t have to taste bad, and that trying new foods can be fun!”
- Elise Eaton, Director, Extraordinary Education
