Students who want to earn credit toward a graduate degree from Montana State University (MSU) this summer can enroll in a new online course that covers subjects related to food and nutrition.

The class, which is titled Food and Nutrition Across the Elementary Curriculum, will take place between June 13 and July 29. This six-week course is created for elementary school teachers, providing them with instruction on nutritional health and ideas on how to bring food education into the classroom through lesson plans and student activities.

Information included in the course, which is being offered through Montana State Online and the National Teachers Enhancement Network, is ideally used for the promotion of healthy habits both in the classroom and through greater school wellness efforts, such as school gardens and "Farm to School" programs.

Those who take the fully online course will receive one graduate credit at MSU, which can be used toward either on online certificate for science teachers or a master's degree in science education. Thanks to the convenience of studying online, the class is ideal for teachers who are unable to take time off to study on MSU's main Bozeman campus.
