Program Resources

As part of ProMedica’s childhood obesity initiative, students in grades 10 – 12 helped develop a healthy breakfast plan for elementary school children. Each meal plan was required to include five in-school and five at-home meals, plus education materials for parents on the importance of nutrition and healthy eating. Please feel free to use these resources to implement the program in your school.
