The Kids Eat Right toolkits are an absolute perfect fit for my needs! I work with a pediatric obesity clinic and the toolkit topics align with my weekly themes. Each week, I teach kids and their families how healthy foods and proper nutrition can not only aid in weight loss, but make themselves healthier from head to toe. I will use the toolkit information frequently. The KER toolkits are perfectly packaged, easily accessible and, in my opinion, considered a home run of nutrition information!

Being a Kids Eat Right Crew mini-grantee was a great experience! The kids really enjoyed the lessons and the materials were ready and easy to use. I hope to be able to do more lessons like this with our youth in the future.

As a Kids Eat Right Crew mini-grantee, I taught the Healthy Snacking presentation to 5th graders. They loved it. They were very interactive. I liked that the presentation was pre-made and had nice graphics and can also be tweaked to the specific audience.

As a Kids Eat Right campaign member and recipient of a mini-grant, presentations were made at a Family Health Night using the Healthy Breakfast and Family Meals toolkits. Attendees rotated through several different stations, receiving information at each station on the specific topic of that station plus participating in some activity at the station.

There was positive feedback about the presentations. The toolkits provided easily modifiable scripts and colorful professional handouts. In addition, the Eatright handout, “20 Ways to Enjoy More Fruits and Vegetables” was used. Thank you for providing such useful toolkits!

The Kids Eat Right toolkit was extremely successful and the kids seemed to really benefit from it. It was an interactive way to learn about the importance of eating a balanced breakfast every day. Many of them had common barriers to this issue and shared ideas on how to combat them. I would recommend the Kids Eat Right toolkits to any dietitian looking for a quick and simple presentation on a variety of topics geared towards kids eating healthy.

As a Kids Eat Right Crew mini-grantee, I used the Healthy Snacking toolkit and presented to two groups of teens. My favorite part of the toolkit was the handout. One student told me, “I will ask my mom to make some of these snacks for me,” referring to the ideas on the handout.
