NUTRITION RESOURCES


Most US children attend school for 6 hours a day and consume as much as half of their daily calories at school. The school nutrition environment and services is part of the Whole School, Whole Community, Whole Child (WSCC) model and can help shape lifelong healthy eating behaviors.

CDC - Engaging Parents in School Nutrition

The American Academy of Pediatrics recommends that adolescents do not consume energy drinks; yet, between 30-50% reported consuming energy drinks. Teachers and other school staff can educate students about the danger of consuming too much caffeine, including energy drinks. Parents, school staff, and community members can join the school or district wellness committee that sets the policies for health and wellness and establish or revise nutrition standards to address the sale and marketing of energy drinks in school settings.
