About

Dear Nutrition for Kids Believers

Unfortunately, we have been unsuccessful in obtaining full funding for our amazing project - but have no fear - we will continue our efforts to bring the Nutrition for Kids online education program to life!!

Here is what we are doing to ensure the success of this amazing, groundbreaking program:

  1. We are continuing our fundraising campaign through the Naturopathic Medicine Institute, a non-profit organization that envisions a world where enjoying optimal health allows people to reach their highest potential.
  2. Our extraordinary team of highly skilled practitioners and dietitian nutritionists will be using these funds to create and develop the first modules of the Nutrition for Kids program.
  3. As an early backer, you will have access to the beta testing phase of the project - a great opportunity to helps us create exactly what you would like to see come to life.

Here is what YOU can do to help:

  1. Go to the Naturopathic Medicine Institute website ( https://www.naturopathicmedicineinstitute.org/) and donate directly to the Nutrition for Kids project.
  2. We will continue to honor all of the pledge rewards, as outlined in the Kickstarter campaign.
  3. Funds pledged in Kickstarter will not be drawn upon, so any donation you give through NMI will be your first donation. 
  4. Be sure to sign up for our mailing list, so that we can keep you informed about the progress we are making.
  5. We will be running a second fundraising campaign in a few months, so please check back regularly through our Nutrition for Kids Facebook page or sign up for our mailing list, and we will keep you in the loop!!

Thank you in advance for helping us to bring this project to life.

Warmest Regards,

The Naturopathic Medicine Institute and the Nutrition for Kids Team

We can create nutrition smart and healthy kids!

The Nutrition for Kids program is being developed to impact and improve all children’s health through education and heightened nutrition focused awareness. Our goal is to provide the information and resources necessary to help children and their families to make better lifestyle choices, leading to improved health and quality of life. N4Ks will be an online learning platform focused on providing accurate, up-to-date nutrition education to children and teens in grades K through 12. The curriculum, which is grouped into age-appropriate levels (K-2, 3-5, 6-8, 9-12), will exceed current school standards. 

It seems today that both children and adults are misguided and confused about what they “should” and “shouldn’t” eat. Currently, most of us get our nutrition information from TV commercials and the Internet – daily sound bites that are incomplete, contradictory and confusing. Our children get some exposure to health and wellness initiatives through the public school system. These initiatives provide basic nutrition education and stress the importance of exercise. In addition, the Food and Nutrition departments of many school districts are headed by Registered Dietitian Nutritionists who are implementing healthier school menu options. However, the children who are benefiting from these programs have no educational support to help them understand how to make important dietary and activity choices in their own lives.

Nutrition for Kids is being developed to provide a better, more comprehensive nutritional education option for children and their families. And because we also understand that educators need reliable and accurate resources to teach nutrition, our program is being developed not only so that students can work independently through the various lessons and activities, but also to serve as a teaching platform for educators working in group settings. 

The Nutrition for Kids program is designed to be an ongoing, accurate and reliable source of nutrition information and lifestyle support for the community as a whole. Please support us in our efforts to bring this much needed resource to life.

Risks and challenges

This is a long-term project that we intend to launch in beta version by December 2019. We will keep everyone posted along the way and give all of our backers a chance to contribute their ideas in multiple ways. The first release is scheduled for December 2019 but we will continue working on the program!

The total budget for this project is estimated to be $750K - and we are fundraising to get off the ground. We are also writing for grants and are taking private donations along the way.
