   I LOVE the Daily Scoop! Each morning one of my students gets to read the message for that    day on "good nutrition news." It's an important beginning to each day.     Leslie Engel, Elementary School Teacher

​​​​​​​​​​The Daily Scoop is a series of fun, consistent and easy to understand daily nutrition tips for kids grades K - 8. Added to the daily school wide announcements or a teacher's opening routine, The Daily Scoop elevates nutrition education to a daily and consistent practice, without adding more than 30 seconds to a teacher's busy routine!  It's FREE and available to start at anytime!

The Daily Scoop is filled with fun kid-friendly health messages that spiral and build on each other over the course of the month. By making this part of our morning routine, my students have started to own the vocabulary to express how and why they should fill their plates with healthy fruits, vegetables and "cool beans!"   Hillary Rogers, Elementary School Teacher

The Daily Scoop is an excellent way for schools and teachers to infuse “bites” of easy-to-digest nutrition education into each school day. The monthly recipes (in English and Spanish) are a great tool to extend this information out to families, and link what the students hear at school with what they taste at home!  Deirdre Kleske, Co-Chair, Schools & After-School Domain, San Diego County Childhood Obesity Initiative 

The Daily Scoop has been a fantastic resource for our nutrition education programs across the district.  It easily fits into our Harvest of the Month program, and gives teachers another avenue to connect students with nutrition information.  I love how the tips include a cultural and environmental perspective in addition to the more science-based nutrition tips.  Amy Haessly, Nutrition & Education Specialist, Vista USD
