    Today, children and youth eating healthy is a topic of numerous researches showing that the number of improperly nourished young people is high, one of the reasons being unhealthy eating. By educating, we can influence the young to opt for healthier selections when choosing their food. How successful this education is, depends also on selecting an appropriate work method. Nutrition cards enable learning about nutritional and energy values, appropriate food combinations and nutritional planning. They are conceived in such a way that they combine textual and pictorial information (basic information, photos traffic-light labelling, and portions). The purpose of this thesis was to establish how efficient the cards are when dealing with milk and dairy products. The research which comprised 28 elementary-school pupils tried to verify if the nutrition cards are an efficient part of the pedagogic process, and learn what pupils think about them (appearance, informativeness) and whether they believe that the cards helped them learn more. The results of this pedagogic experiment show a positive influence of nutrition cards in the pedagogic process. While pupils found them interesting, they also believed to remember more due to activities in which cards were used.
