Nutrition Education in Primary Schools: A planning guide for curriculum development

Well-nourished citizens is a primary indicator of the social and economic development of a nation. To accomplish this development, the people need to be educated about what an appropriate diet entails. Most eating habits are formed early in life, therefore it is important that children receive nutrition education in school to set them up for success later in life. However, such an education is commonly not offered to pupils in schools.

In order to fil this gap, the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations has prepared this guide to assist educators in nutrition education and behaviour reform across the globe. The Planning Guide consists of a technical reader, a set of worksheets and a classroom curriculum chart.
