About School Assemblies

Grades Pre-K through 8 can experience “Try it, You’ll Like it” and “The Super Salad Bar” nutrition assemblies in schools and at camps, too!

Kids can’t get enough of these fun and interactive experiences that leave principals, teachers, parent volunteers and parents at home in awe as kids tempt their taste buds with food that comes from nature!

Our hands-on approach is so memorable because students love sampling food. We know that food allergies are a concern and as registered dietitians we partner with your school nurse to make sure all children are safe. All of the food served is free of peanuts and tree nuts, and in most cases are wheat free. We serve high quality natural and organic foods for taste testing, too.

“Programs like HealthBarn USA’s ‘Try It’ assemblies aid in exposing our students to a variety of healthy foods through a fun and interactive educational experience. The more our students are exposed, the easier it becomes for them to make healthy choices.”

– Raquel Barnes, Health and Physical Education teacher and Wellness Chair, H.B. Wilson Family School, Camden City, NJ

“Is HealthBarn USA a store? My son who never eats salad came home from school requesting salad and talked about your salad dressing? Can I come by and buy it?”  

“Sorry mom you can’t buy it, but we can share the recipe with you so you can make it home!”

– From a mom who dialed into HealthBarn USA
