Event description

Description

Most U.S. 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.

This workshop will provide attendees guidance on the policies and practices for creating a nutrition environment that supports students in making healthy choices. In addition, the workshop will include a presentation from the Liberty's Kitchen School Nutrition Program.
