(NaturalNews) The Consumer Wellness Center (CWC), a nonprofit organization devoted to empowering consumers with information on health and wellness issues, today announced the winners of its 2010 Nutritional Education Grant program. Seven organizations from around the world will receive $1,000 grants to initiate or expand programs designed to teach children and mothers about the importance of good nutrition in maintaining and improving health and well-being.

"These are the kind of nutrition education programs our world desperately needs to restore health and create a promising future for our children," said Mike Adams, the Health Ranger, the volunteer Executive Director of the non-profit Consumer Wellness Center. "Our goal is to put resources and funding into the hands of those who can teach our children how to save their health and feed themselves natural, health-supporting meals based on sound nutritional principles." Adams is also the editor of NaturalNews.com, a natural health news site reaching millions of readers each month.

Here are the CWC grant winners:

Project Colors

Project Colors, a children's overseas learning opportunities and resources society, will use the $1,000 grant to purchase quality food and supplies for its Tiny Tummies program. Roughly 160 African children living in tuberculosis-ridden slums will benefit as the program's coordinators teach them how to eat well and boost their immune systems through proper nutrition.

Jackson Teen Parent Program

The Jackson Teen Parent Program, a lifestyle youth enhancement project in a low-income area of Mississippi, will use the $1,000 grant to buy a blender and food supplies for its educational seminars. The seminars teach youth and adults how to identify, prepare, and cook healthy foods; how to monitor blood pressure, blood glucose, and cholesterol levels; and how to calculate body mass index (BMI).

UnderMountain Elementary School

UnderMountain Elementary School in Massachusetts plans to use the $1,000 grant to completely fund its Eat Well and Learn Program, a nutrition course that will teach 375 children about the importance of organic and locally-grown food, as well as how to prepare such foods for snacks and meals.

Neshaminy School District

For the second year in a row, the Neshaminy School District in Pennsylvania has been awarded a $1,000 grant that it will use to further expand its Nutrition: Fitness for Life program. Last year, the district had hoped to implement a system-wide series of nutrition commercials to broadcast to its 3,000 students, but it lacked necessary funding. With this year's grant, the district will now be able to air them as well as buy food and supplies for classes that will teach 200 children the science behind nutritional "superfoods".

The C.A.R.E. Center

The C.A.R.E. Center, a program of New Hope Elementary School in Alabama, will use its $1,000 grant to purchase nutritional videos, a refrigerator, an electric range, and various cookware and utensils needed for its healthy cooking club. New Hope is a Title I school where more than half the students participate in the Free and Reduced Lunch Assistance Program. And about 385 of them will now be able to participate in a nutrition course led by a certified dietician who will teach them about the importance of eating a well-balanced diet.

Vida Charter School

Vida Charter School, located in an ethnically, socio-economically, and culturally diverse Pennsylvania neighborhood where proper nutrition is lacking, will use the grant money to purchase food and cooking equipment for its Food is Elementary Program. A registered dietician will teach 86 students about the importance of integrating whole foods into their diet, and will lead them in cooking and preparation exercises designed to catalyze practical dietary changes.

Nurture Organization of Illinois

And for the second year in a row, The Nurture Organization of Illinois will use the $1,000 grant to purchase food and cooking supplies for its prenatal nutrition program. Last year, the organization used the money to double the number of expectant mothers it was able to teach about how to feel better and improve health through better nutrition. This year, it plans to use the money to further expand the program.
