The Kids Eat Right toolkits were very easy to access and download. The children and their parents found the information at the appropriate level for them to understand. Parents truly appreciated how applicable and sensible the information was, enabling them to make positive changes to the family diet.

As a new RD last year, I decided to give back to the schools that gave me so much while I was a student there. I presented the "MythBusters" presentation at my former grade school's PTA meeting. I also presented the "Healthy Snacking for the Teen Athlete" to my former high school football team. Both audiences received the information well and were very excited about them!

I had the opportunity to present 'Healthy Eating for Teens' to over 120 high school students. I ended the presentation by making two different fruit and dairy smoothies for everyone to sample. It was very well received. Thank you for supporting me in getting this great message out!

I presented the Hunger and Overweight presentation from the Kids Eat Right Hunger in Our Community toolkit to North Carolina State University's Public Health Nutrition Class. There were at least 45 students in attendance and at the completion of this presentation students were able to provide options to improving access to good nutrition throughout North Carolina. In fact, some student took on the project to identify Summer Food Service Program sponsors and sites in target counties.

Emilie says, "The Kids Eat Right Healthy Snacking toolkit was very easy to use and so helpful. It was great having the presentation right at our fingertips ready to use. The kids loved the visuals, especially the demonstrations how calcium and magnesium work together to open and close their fists. Thanks for providing wonderful evidence-based presentations that RDs can have at our fingertips! We have been invited to come back again next year to present, looking forward to using yet another Kids Eat Right presentation!" Kamey adds, "We had such positive feedback from the presentations we provided using the Kids Eat Right toolkits. Making nutrition fun and interactive is a great way for kids to learn! Thanks so much for providing these resources so we can help make a nutrition impact in our community!"

This Kids Eat Right mini-grant has allowed us to become a partner with a school down the street from us which is 50% minority (Hamilton Park Pacesetter Magnet School). We now have an ongoing dialog and are the school’s "nutritionists." I look forward to applying for another grant as these are available to continue to provide nutrition to the school.

As a Kids Eat Right mini-grantee, I presented the Rage Against Rumbles toolkit presentation to our local 4-H Club. My 13-year-old son helped to collect the canned food items we asked members to donate to the Ottawa University's Hungry for Change chapter. They put together Thanksgiving food baskets for 30 families. I also presented the Hunger in Our Community presentation at 4-H Council which is made up of 4-H member leaders and parents throughout Franklin County. As a community service project we decided to ask members of each of the ten 4-H Clubs in the county to donate non-perishable food items to our local food bank. I really appreciated the fact that the 4-Hers were able to put what they learned in the toolkit to action to help address hunger in our community. Thanks!

Being a Kids Eat Right mini-grantee allowed me to create valuable connections and work with groups I haven't reached. The conversation and idea-generating discussion prior to the cooking demo in the Family Champions toolkit was amazing! I could see parents thinking about their situation at home and how they could apply some healthier habits. It was very rewarding.Thank you!
