Nutrition and Wellness

Mrs. Sykes

Nutrition and Wellness enables students to analyze the

interaction of nutrition, foods, and fitness for overall wellness
of individuals and families throughout the lifespan. In this
course students will develop nutrition and fitness habits to make wise
decisions regarding healthy living and prevention of disease through
these practices. As active learners, students develop higher order
thinking skills and academic skills in the areas of math, science,
language arts and social studies through the evaluation of relevant
nutrition and wellness information. This course is recommended for
all students regardless of their career cluster or pathway, in order to
build basic nutrition and wellness knowledge and skills, and is
especially appropriate for students with interest in human services,
wellness/fitness, health, or food and nutrition related career
