KickinNutrition.TV is a new, evidence-based digital nutrition and wellness curriculum program for grades 4-7!
"KickinNutrition.TV is just what our kids need to discover healthy eating on their own. No preaching! No boring lessons! Instead, the super cool videos allow tweens to observe healthy eating through videos and to hone their knowledge and skills through fun games that students control!"- Peggy Johns, Supervisor, Pre K-12 Health Education, Pinellas County School District, FL
"KickinNutrition.TV is the most fantastic show I’ve ever seen. Because I saw the show, I had my mom throw away her Pepsi bottle and we started singing ‘drinking my smoothie’ and making smoothies for everyone."- Senai Orum, 5th Grade Student, Harlem Village Academy Charter School, NYC, NY
"I would recommend KickinNutrition.TV to any school or after school program because of the ease and the genuine excitement you see from the kids on screen. KickinNutrition.TV is fun, fast-paced, and all together a really amazing program that can change the way kids look at food for the better."- Jada Kelly, Health and Fitness Manager, PUC Schools, Burbank, CA
"KickinNutrition.TV is a way to bridge learning and culinary traditions between the home life and schools. It is a great idea that they are able write recipes, which is key on literacy, and they’re able to measure food, which is math, so they’re able to learn during the school day in a fun way. They don’t even realize that they’re learning. I cannot say enough good things about KickinNutrition,"- Kimberley Jackson-Brown, Program Director, BELL Academy, Queens, NY
