The Five Clues
Nutrition Detectives










Nutrition Detectives®
"Teaching Kids to Make Healthy Choices"

Nutrition Detective™ is an innovative program for elementary school children. It shows them "5 clues" to read food labels and detect marketing deceptions while learning to identify and choose healthful foods. The program is novel, engaging, and efficient, imparting crucial information in minimal time. It can be presented using either a DVD video presentation (with Dr. Katz teaching students in a "magical" classroom setting), or as a PowerPoint slide show. The presentation is followed by a hands-on activity in which children apply their "detective" skills with real food packages.

We hope that you enjoy the Nutrition Detectives™ program. Please credit Drs. David and Catherine Katz when using it.

Nutrition Detectives™ is available FREE OF CHARGE!*
