As a Kids Eat Right Chartwells Mini-Grantee, I presented the Healthy Breakfast presentation to elementary students. The kindergarten class enjoyed the "3 B's" lesson and also playing the "Red Light, Green Light" activity. The 4th and 5th-grade students enjoyed building a better breakfast activity and learning that breakfast helps improve their energy level and their grades. I like the activity ideas in the Kids Eat Right toolkits to engage my audience.

As a Chartwells Mini-Grantee, I presented the Healthy Breakfast toolkit to elementary students. The students loved making breakfast yogurt parfaits and wanted seconds. The teachers were very appreciative. I liked the presentation outline with estimated timeframes and the questions to ask the children and get them involved in the discussion. I also appreciated the focus on plant-based breakfasts.

As a Chartwells Mini-Grantee, Michelle Black and I presented the Healthy Snacking toolkit to elementary students and their parents. Both the students and the parents loved the food we sampled and found the lessons very applicable to their daily life. I liked that there are lessons for different audiences, so I was able to first teach the students and then their parents.

I had the privilege to give seven nutrition talks today to 130 children at an elementary school in Newtown, Conn. I used the Chartwells Kids Eat Right mini-grant money to purchase materials to give the children a hands-on experience. They built a healthy breakfast with food models along with MyPlate placemats and learned about the importance of all five food groups. The kids were able to recite the 3B's (breakfast is good for their bodies, bellies and brains) and committed to eating a healthy breakfast every day!

Thank you for awarding me the Kids Eat Right mini-grant. The grant opened doors for me and afforded me the opportunity to meet new people and talk about nutrition as an RD within the Noble school district (MSAD 60) in Maine. Something I would not have done otherwise. In every class I explained what an RD is and why it's a great career. I feel so blessed to be able to share my passion with teens and enthusiastic second, 3rd and 4th-graders.

I teamed up with a chef to present the Kids Eat Right Toolkits in my community through the Chartwells mini-grant I received. We demonstrated how to make homemade hummus and provided a vegetable pita with a side of fruit salad. The participants really loved this!

Kids Eat Right (KER) is my passion! It was an honor to be part of the original KER planning committee and I am amazed at the progress in just a few short years. The KER website is one of my favorite features. It provides consumers with accurate information on how to shop, cook and eat from the experts they trust - registered dietitians. I love receiving the Monday (Message) filled with social media links that I can easily share on my blog: "Healthy Eating for Families." My readers particularly enjoy the cooking videos and recipes. I encourage every RD to become a KER volunteer. Just think of the impact 74,000 united voices would have on improving kids eating habits?!

I am fortunate to have had the opportunity to present in front of the 4th-graders of El Descanso Elementary school as part of the Kids Eat Right Chartwells mini-grant. The presentation (Healthy Snacking) was a huge success thanks to the tools and resources provided to me by Kids Eat Right. Campaign.
