Nutrition Exploration

At this site you will find resources for school nutrition professionals, educators, and parents, plus fun food games for kids. There is a school milk financial calculator, lessons connecting school meals and classroom learning, and lessons to teach food groups. You can find recipes, including the results of a snack recipe contest (first place: rocket salad; second place: sweet 'n' cool fruity snack bars; third place: peanut butter chew balls).

"I love that this is an easy to use site that fosters professional collaboration and improvement of teaching and learning while providing tools for educators in a one stop place. The templates are easy to use. I've been using them lately for workshops and online courses as well as for creating and updating an educator web resource list. Updating on the fly is so easy. My sites look professional and are easy to navigate. In the past I've used them to help teachers with project planning, and would love to do that again.

Barbara is extremely responsive to my needs when I've made requests. This personal touch is extremely awesome!"
