Many negative health outcomes can be linked to poor dietary habits. Dietary habits are formed during childhood, therefore, by incorporating nutrition education into the school day, children can develop a strong foundation for a healthy relationship with food. This presentation will explore the impact that well designed standards based nutrition education curriculum can have on dietary behaviors while exploring different tools to design and implement these programs.
