The Power of 3: Get Healthy with Whole Grain Foods

The Power of 3: Get Healthy with Whole Grain Foods is a school-based curriculum designed to increase intake of whole grain foods by elementary school students in grades 3 to 6. The 2005 Dietary Guidelines for Americans recommends an eating pattern to lower chronic disease risk and promote health. A key message is that half of the grain servings should be whole grain foods.

This 3-component program includes a five-lesson classroom curriculum supporting student learning and behavior change, newsletters and events to encourage parents to make whole grain foods available at home, and information for school foodservice personnel to increase the number of whole grain foods that are incorporated into school menus.
