KidsCOOK Productions today announced the launch of KickinNutrition.TV (KNTV), a new online health and wellness curriculum designed to educate students in grades 4 through 8 about healthier food and exercise choices. The evidence-based, multimedia program, which is centered around six tween-focused cooking and nutrition education “webisodes,” uses humor, peer appeal and a blend of digital and hands-on learning activities to motivate kids to overcome obstacles to healthy eating and physical activity.
The program showcases affordable, quick and simple recipes,cooking demonstrations and features positive student role models, music, interactive games and higher-order thinking activities.
KNTV was developed in collaboration with nutrition and education experts from Boston University, Tufts’ Friedman School of Nutrition Science and Policy, and Harvard School of Public Health.
