Curriculum for Grades 6-8

EatFit is a research-tested curriculum developed by the University of California and designed to improve the dietary and physical activity behaviors of middle school students, grades 6-8. The curriculum contains nine experiential lessons with topics on goal setting, label reading, fast food, breakfast, exercise, energy balance and advertising. EatFit engages students in a personal self-assessment of eating and physical activity behaviors using www.eatfit.net. Based on the results, students set goals using “guided goal setting” principles. The curriculum provides skill-building activities to help reach those goals and includes a magazine style workbook for every student.


SNAP-Ed is funded by USDA’s Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program. The Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program provides nutrition assistance to people with low income. It can help you buy nutritious foods for a better diet. To find out more, 1-877-501-2233. http://foodhelp.wa.gov/
