PE-Nut™ (Physical Education and Nutrition Working Together) is a program developed by the Michigan Fitness Foundation and is implemented by trained NKFM educators. It is a nutrition and physical education program that uses a whole-school approach to motivate students, parents, and educators to be physically active and eat healthier within the elementary school setting. Carefully linked to the Michigan Grade Level Content Expectations, PE-Nut™ provides a pathway to infuse nutrition and physical education while covering the specific material required by the state.
The program incorporates a planned curriculum, food sampling, structured physical activity, books, daily health messages, and even school-wide events. The NKFM is currently funded by the Michigan Fitness Foundation to offer PE-Nut™ to eligible schools in Wayne County.
