August 1, 2022 - USDA’s Team Nutrition is excited to announce the release of new Fueling My Healthy Life nutrition education for 7th and 8th grade students, available at fns.usda.gov/tn/fueling-my-healthy-life. This standards-aligned and inquiry-based collection of educational resources is designed to engage middle school students using a variety of learning styles.

Educators can pick and choose from a variety of learning activities to create a fun lesson with easy to access digital materials including informational text articles, student assessments, digital interactives (i.e., games), and videos.
