About Power to Explore

Power to Explore is a medieval-themed classroom nutrition education program that helps students develop skills to make  food and drink choices. Students progress through the lessons by reading the story of Sir Wonderlaine, a medieval knight on a quest that challenges students to make decisions in their own everyday lives. The program’s assessment activities and goal setting are specifically designed to help students establish positive, life-long practices in eating.
