These are free (1 each) posters and activity booklets.  I got the activity booklet for 9-12 year olds and it is so nice!  It was a pleasant surprise, it is more like a full length activity book that just the short flyer type I usually get when I order freebies.  Thought I'd pass this one along!

These are from the National Eye Institute, btw.

The WILD ABOUT HEALTHY EYES one - that I got - covers eye anatomy, how the eye WORKS to see an image - what sunglasses do, ect.  It is a lot of good science.

I'm not seeing the food information with the dvd/materials.  Can you give me some more direction?  Thanks!

If you go to online ordering  on the food information site it asks where you give nutritional info: school meals, child care, Wic,foodstamps and other

If you pick school or child care   it gives you a list of materials...

but

it also  states: " Team Nutrition print materials are available only to schools and child care facilities that participate in the Federal Child Nutrition Programs."

 

If you chose other it gives you a very short list of 3 posters that are available as pdfs  but  can be ordered in print form as well.

Those are great, guys, thanks. Especially the eye materials. It's perfect timing. Dd has been reading her body books and particularly interested in eyes lately. =)
