Join us for a webinar designed to: – Provide a supportive framework for nutrition education at various grade levels – Explore a curated sample of home learning lesson plans and activity ideas designed for use during COVID-19 – Identify resources for families, designed to support eating well during COVID-19 while minimizing stress and anxiety around food.
