Nutrikids is a UBC student initiative that provides nutrition education workshops in Vancouver elementary schools.
Student volunteers work in pods to plan and run interactive workshops. Our focus is to teach fundamental nutrition concepts and decision-making skills that will help children make healthy choices and establish positive dietary habits.
Each workshop, the student volunteers visit the classroom, bringing stories, songs, games, a variety of bread, fruits and vegetables, and a message that goes with them: good food and physical activity are smart choices.
If you’re looking for a unique volunteer opportunity to practice nutrition education skills, and to gain excellent experience in working with children and developing nutrition workshops, you should think about Nutrikids!
