What is the On the Path to Health! program?

– It is a program that is composed of 28 nutrition workshops – four different workshops
for all seven elementary school levels, from kindergarten up to grade six;
– The workshops include various fun and educational activities: games, food preparation,
creation activities, treasure hunt, rally, sampling activities, etc.;
– The workshops are developed in such a way as to allow for their integration into
the school curriculum. Each workshop lasts approximately 60 minutes, which is the
duration of one class period, in order to be sure that they can easily be held during
class hours.

The objectives of the program are as follows:
• promote traditional foods;

• learn how to recognize and respect the signs of hunger and satiety.
