Block Tools 

Mother and Child at computer

Kids and parents need access to information about healthy eating habits in many different places — not just the kitchen table. That's why Around the Block provides useful tools to help you keep kids informed about Spot The Block's three key messages and the Nutrition Facts Label on food packages.

Block Tools help bring Spot The Block's message to kids when they need it most: at mealtime!

Just telling kids the facts about nutrition isn't enough; they've got to be able to use what they learn in real-world situations. That means making good dietary decisions in and out of the house.

Use Block Tools to Help Your Kids Get Their Food Facts First!

Watch this space for our (upcoming) brochures that feature additional information about the Nutrition Facts Label on food packages and how it can help your child make informed dietary decisions based on key food facts. Having access to nutrition information is the first step towards making healthful eating decisions, and brochures from Around the Block will provide kids with nutrition facts whenever they need them.
