ʻĀINA Nutrition Education Food Guide (8.5x11)

The ʻĀINA Food Guide is a central piece of the ʻĀINA In Schools Nutrition Curriculum and is a tool students and their families can use to make healthy eating choices. It depicts familiar, locally available foods split into five food categories that are defined by the health impacts they have on our bodies: Protective, Energy, Body-Building, Brain and Caution Foods. Whole foods, like vegetables, fruits, nuts, legumes and whole grains, are as close to their natural form as possible.
