Join Team Nutrition!

Becoming a Team Nutrition School is easy and will help you focus attention on the important role nutritious school meals, nutrition education and a health-promoting school environment play in helping students learn to enjoy healthy eating and physical activity. It will provide the framework for team efforts by school nutrition staff, teachers, parents, the media and other community members.

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.
