Feedback

Our presentations have been well-received by tens of thousands of educators and community organizations who use our educational resources in their classrooms and venues year after year.

What our viewers are saying:

“My classes have had the opportunity to listen to the presentation on Healthful Eating. After the presentations I have had a few students approach me saying they really learned a lot from the presentation. One said that they didn't understand how unhealthy they had been eating, and that they had just assumed that it was healthy since the food was coming from their parents…I would recommend this to all Health teachers, because it lets students know there are plenty of options at their disposal and that healthful eating is very attainable." - 9th-Grade Teacher,  Waukee, Iowa
