Breakfast Club of Canada

Project Title

Nutrition Oriented Videos for School Meal Program Coordinators (1 of 2)

Project Description

Students will work to research, develop, and deploy three 1-3 minute videos aimed at educating breakfast coordinators about nutrition. The concept of these videos are to be determined by the students with guidance from the BCC nutrition team. Video ideas include highlighting several low-budget healthy recipe ideas, targeting special food groups, etc.. 

Project Goal

The goal of this project is to develop three informative, fun videos that school breakfast coordinators can use as inspiration to serve healthy breakfasts to students, while maintaining a strict budget, reducing waste etc. The videos will provide nutritional information, and be tailored toward easy-to-prepare (or store) meals that can be made for large groups of students.

The production of these videos will support the Club’s goal to encourage healthy eating habits and food literacy in our partners and the students we serve.
