Who We Are

Nutrikids is a UBC student initiative that provides nutrition education workshops in elementary schools across the Lower Mainland. Student volunteers work in “pods” to plan and deliver interactive workshops.


Our focus is to teach fundamental nutrition concepts and decision-making skills that will help children establish healthy dietary habits and maintain a positive relationship with food.


Each workshop, the student volunteers visit the classroom, bringing stories, songs, games, and a variety of foods.

 

Guiding Principles

Our fundamental belief is that giving kids the opportunity to touch, feel, smell, taste, and experience a variety of whole foods, is key to cultivating a lasting relationship to healthy eating for life.

Passion for Food

To bring our passion for food, nutrition and health, to kids in the community and advocate the importance of healthy eating and living through classroom workshops.
