Summary: Nutrition education materials for K-8 using space-themed cartoon characters.

Details: This site provides entertaining printable lesson plans with interactive learning activities from a joint initiative of Dietitians of Canada and Kellogg Canada. The intergalactic Mission Nutrition team with Captain Kip, Glubber and Handy-Bot entertain the students while teaching valuable lessons about healthy eating, active living and positive self-esteem. The site also provides resources for healthy family activities. The cartoon characters may be particularly appealing to young boys, and could therefore be a great way to inspire this adolescent group.

Sample lesson plans:

K-1: Mission 1 – One Of A Kind Amazing Bodies
Grade 2-3: Mission 3 – Food To Grow, Go And Glow
Grade 4-5: Mission 2 – Exploring Vitamins and Minerals
Grade 6-8: Mission 4 – Using Food Labels
