School Programs: for elementary, junior high, and high school based on a Comprehensive School Health model. The cost for the full year intervention of NSTEP EAT WALK LIVE (elementary) is $24.00 per student. The cost for the full year intervention for NSTEP Teen Brain(junior/middle school) is $10.00 per student.
Community Programs: Chef on NSTEP is an after-school initiative that involves partners and community cooking, meeting the needs of each community. Chef on NSTEP is teaching food literacy and cooking skills to children and youth.
Employee Wellness: This focus is largely on including and involving our local funders and their employees in the needs of their communities and providing knowledge, new skills, and an opportunity to explore attitudes and changes they could make in their lives and families that would ensure they are happier, healthier, and active.
We believe that small changes cumulatively add up to huge results. Students learn and practice new behaviours so that they become habits. Parents learn what foods to buy and eat. NSTEP teaches the school community to EAT,WALK and LIVE.
- EAT — More from the Four Food Groups (Canada’s Food Guide to Healthy Eating)
- WALK — more than before
- LIVE — longer, LIVE healthier
The result of this is Be Smarter — strong research between academic performance nutrition and activity.
