Today is National Summer Learning Day. Events are happening all over the United States and even worldwide, promoting the importance of learning during summer.
At Nourish Interactive, we wholeheartedly support summer learning and that is why we are a member of the Center for Summer Learning, sponsored by Johns Hopkins University. We agree that children need high quality engaging summer learning opportunities to stimulate their minds and practice important skills. Whether your child is going to a summer program or camp or simply at home, there are plenty of good learning opportunities. Kids can learn about healthy eating and exercise by playing our fun online nutrition games for kids including Chef Solus and the Food Pyramid Adventure, our healthy meal planners to learn about the kids' USDA food pyramid and create a balanced meal and much more.
To give you some background, the center was founded after a undergrad student began a summer reading program. The university then conducted a study and found that kids who participated in the reading program during summer, outperformed those children who did not by 50% a grade level!
