May 16, 2013, Park Ridge, Illinois–As you are among nearly 1,000 Family & Consumer Science teachers and nutrition educators that are members of ENC-Teacher Exchange, you may wish to re-visit our web site now that we’ve populated it with 10 videos on topics ranging from “obesity” and “hunger” to “protein benefits,” and made dozens of new downloadable teaching tools available. Click here to visit www.encteacher.org when you get a chance, and be sure to bookmark it for future reference.

ENC-Teacher Exchange remains focused this year on obesity prevention, but we’ve added another new video feature this week that describes how the Dallas Independent School District recently voted unanimously to combat hunger by bringing breakfast into the classroom for all of its 157,000 students.

ENC-Teacher Exchange was introduced early in 2012 by Egg Nutrition Center (ENC), science division of The American Egg Board in Park Ridge, Ill, and is supported by The American Association of Family & Consumer Sciences.

Egg Nutrition Center’s contribution to America’s efforts to improve the overall health of K thru 12th grade students through better nutrition and regular physical activity is best expressed through the 10 video stories and affiliated downloadable resources we’ve published to date, each of which highlight practical solutions that are most often spearheaded by teachers and school administrators. These stories are cataloged in ENC-Teacher Exchange channels on YouTube and SchoolTube.
