'NSTEP stands for Nutrition, Students, Teachers Exercising with Parents.
'NSTEP is a not-for-profit registered charity, providing hands-on nutrition and physical activity programs directly into the classroom in Alberta and British Columbia. Our goal is to prevent obesity in children and youth. The ‘NSTEP EAT WALK LIVE program provides fun, interactive nutrition and activity education to every student and teacher within a school community. The entire school shares a common message and collectively works together to create a cultural change leading to a healthier school environment. Parent education is also provided.
The program is tailored to meet the diverse needs of all students in each school. 'NSTEP is inclusive'; every student in the classroom is involved in the 'NSTEP program including those who are deaf and hard of hearing, Skill I and II (moderate developmental disabilities).
