Reviewers Comments: This series of 8 ready-made bulletin boards focuses on nutrition and physical activity topics. Each board comes with referenced background information as well as printable handouts or activities for children and/or parents, graphics, pictures, and text. All files are in 2007 Microsoft Office Suite or Adobe Acrobat and use 8˝”x 11” or 8˝”x14” paper. Many of the printable items are colorful, therefore a color printer would be preferable. The components for each board can be used all together as suggested by the overview and sample picture provided for each. They could also be used to supplement materials that educators may have.

Backgrounds for boards are not provided, colored paper or inexpensive fabric could be used. Educators should ensure that they note the audience to which each bulletin board is targeted as they can vary. Some are targeted toward all ages, some toward only children, and some adults. The overview document that comes with each board details the audience. Modifications could easily be made to tailor boards to a variety of audiences.

Recommendations and information included on the bulletin board are consistent with the 2010 Dietary Guidelines for Americans. The series of bulletin boards does contain a small number of recipes, for which nutrition fact labels are not available.
