Abstract: Nutrition Detectives™ is a nutrition education program for elementary school children. The program teaches students to read food labels and detect marketing deceptions while learning to identify and choose healthful foods. Lessons can be using either a DVD video presentation 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.
