The Boston NEP office offers youth and adult programs throughout greater Boston. Extension Nutrition Educators collaborate with schools, community agencies and health centers to design, develop and teach nutrition education lessons. Nutrition Education Activities include classroom lessons, single-session workshops, health fairs, and Parent Nutrition Night Classes. Classroom lessons are tailored to various grade levels and meet multiple Massachusetts Curriculum Standards. Nutrition Education activities also include a variety of printable, take-home nutrition information and healthy recipes, many of which are also available in Spanish.
