Nutrition Skillathon Kits

The Nutrition Skillathon Kits are an educational study tool that provides youth with hands-on educational items they need to adequately prepare to participate in a Nutrition Skillaton, nutrtion quiz bowl, and baking contests.  The kits introduce youth to nutrition in fun interactive ways and help educate them on health decisions.  Activities and components of the kits are based off  content in 4-H Food and Nutrition project books and the Highland County Skillathon test.  The selected activity areas enhance youths' understanding of nutrients and nutritious foods, using comparison strategies, menu preparation, place setting scenarios, dry and wet ingredient measurement techniques and kitchen gadget identification. This project was made possible in part by a grant from the Ohio 4-H Foundation.
