Team Nutrition is an integrated, behavior-based, comprehensive plan for promoting the nutritional health of the Nation's school children. This plan involves schools, parents, and the community in efforts to continuously improve school meals and to promote the health and education of school children.
Team Nutrition has three behavior-focused strategies:
- Provide training and technical assistance to Child Nutrition foodservice professionals to enable them to prepare and serve nutritious meals that appeal to students.
- Promote nutrition curriculum and education in schools through multiple communication channels to reinforce positive nutrition messages and encourage students to make healthy food and physical activity choices as part of a healthy lifestyle.
- Build school and community support for creating healthy school environments that are conducive to healthy eating and physical activity.
Schools are encouraged to enroll as a Team Nutrition school, affirming their commitment to improving their school wellness environment and gaining access to resources and opportunities exclusively available to Team Nutrition schools. Join the Team today.
