HEALTH BEGINS IN YOUTH

ABOUT US

Kids In Nutrition (KIN) empowers the younger generation to lead healthy and sustainable lives through nutrition and food sustainability education. Early food literacy education has a tremendous downstream effect on carrying healthy and sustainable dietary habits into adulthood, thus building a foundation for:

Chronic Disease Prevention

Health Equity

Environmental Impact Awareness

Our mission focuses on getting kids to think about how their individual dietary choices impacts themselves and the world around them. We utilize a university-to-elementary student mentorship approach to instill lasting dietary change in our youth. Through mobilizing university students, KIN organizes community advocacy efforts to build local foundations for health and sustainability.

 

As KIN expands across the United States, our movement will have a lasting impact on public and environmental health outcomes.

EDUCATION

Teams of five university volunteer instructors visit local elementary classrooms (in-person or virtually) to teach once a week for seven weeks. Lessons are evidence-based and include interactive visuals, hands-on games, physical activity, and group work. Our peer-to-peer mentorship model exerts a powerful influence on behavior change by making nutrition and food sustainability topics relevant and engaging.
