Essential Topics on Healthy Eating

Nutrition education includes practical skills that are part of a comprehensive, standards-based program designed to provide students with the knowledge and proficiency to identify and choose healthier foods and beverages whether students are in the cafeteria line, at a restaurant or at the dinner table. 

Not only is nutrition education important for developing lifelong healthy habits, but now the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s final rule on local wellness policies requires these policies to include measurable goals for nutrition promotion and education. Now is the perfect time to start improving the nutrition education offered by your school or district.
