Nutrition Decathlon

Nutrition Decathlon

Students from the local community report that this one event is their favorite all year long! It could be because of the colorful age-appropriate equipment, the blasting nutrition music, the challenging nutrition trivia, the drawing of fitness prizes, the taste of nature’s candy as students’ hearts pound from running around the field, or it could be the positive energy that the UC CalFresh Nutrition Educators' provide on the field. All these elements combined make it difficult to select only a handful of eligible school sites to participate in the Nutrition Decathlon event each school year. The Nutrition Decathlon is sponsored by the University of California Cooperative Extension (UCCE) and powered by upper elementary students running each nutrition fitness station on the field.
