How to Make Healthy Eating fun, Even on a Budget
In 2008 I founded the nonprofit organization, Nurture (MakeEverythingFun.com/nurture), which has provided nutrition and health education to tens of thousands of children and adults.
Nurture envisions communities working in collaborative ways to enhance the nutrition and wellness of children and families. Nurture provides educational materials (in Spanish and English) to support learning in a fun, hands-on way. Nurture’s goal is to promote healthy lifelong habits. Its programs have often been described as “nutrition education disguised as fun adventures”.
The word “fun” is a key element of what Nurture is all about.
“Kids don’t connect to the concept of changing their behavior to avoid cardiovascular disease or diabetes,” says Dr. Guylay. “They want to run fast, have fun playing with their friends, do well in school, and feel lots of energy.”
Our recipes for adults rival fast-food pricing ($1.50 or less per serving), consist of whole foods and can be made in time-saving cooking equipment like slow cookers and rice cookers.
Our recipes for kids are kid-tested and approved, include a “get-moving” activity to get the kids physically moving their bodies, and are fun!
Our harvest recipes are designed around home and community gardens. After helping families to start gardening plots, we addressed the need to learn more about how to use foods grown such as cilantro, parsley, Swiss Chard, lettuce, tomatoes, and others.
Our cooking class resources provide Recipe Frameworks, handouts, nutrition information, and much more.
Our curriculum is extensive and spans many age groups. An example is our Elementary School program.
