Live It! Real-Life Nutrition For Teens

(Grades 9-12) Pyramid Plus is now Live It! Real-Life Nutrition for Teens. The curriculum has been revised to incorporate MyPlate, the 2010 Dietary Guidelines as well as evaluation data and teacher feedback.

This engaging curriculum motivates and teaches teens to make nutrient-rich food choices. Lessons address nutrition topics for real-life teens.
