myNutratek is a family and community wellness program that integrates with local school districts to help kids make informed, healthful choices about their eating, exercise, sleep and other lifestyle habits. Key to the program is unique, dynamic online software that helps school children, teachers and their families’ record and report their health choices, understand their consequences and reward healthful behaviors. It uses an engaging, fun and private platform to connect children, their caregivers and physicians in a dialog about eating well, exercising and managing other wellness factors.
