Nutrition NUTS Program

Each semester, approximately 30 students from all over the NC State campus visit preschools to read nutrition and health-related books to 3 to 5 year old children, teach their parents about health and wellness topics, or provide nutrition education training to their preschool teachers. In return, students gain a respect for cultural diversity, community programming, and the many public health issues facing our society.
