Healthy Choices for Baltimore is a community service initiative in which medical students (and interested students of other disciplines) go to Midtown Academy, a Baltimore City public charter school, and teach elementary students about different components of nutrition and health. The aim is to inform the students about caring for their bodies and learning how to make healthier choices about food and exercise. Volunteers will go into classrooms for a maximum of one hour a week and teach lesson plans that have been designed for these different age groups. Lessons include reviewing the food pyramid, making healthy choices based on nutrition facts labels, learning about food from other cultures. In addition, the students will discuss current health issues such as diabetes and obesity in children. We hope to teach lessons of moderation and encourage students to take ownership of their bodies and health decisions by providing information, skills and options for healthy living in Baltimore. Most of all, we want to make nutrition and health education fun and accessible for the students while providing medical students another outlet for getting involved in the community.
