Pear-ing up to teach good nutrition

Healthy habits are best learned at a young age, when children are still establishing eating habits that will last a lifetime. Outside the home, classrooms and cafeterias provide the best source of nutritional education.

Bring pear nutrition lessons to the classroom with our school kit! Geared toward teachers and foodservice professionals, our school kit includes a range of material suitable for elementary-aged schoolchildren. Our complimentary kit includes foodservice recipes, activity sheets, sample materials, and more.
