American Dietetic Association supports IOM recommendations on school meal programs
Date:10/22/2009

member. Several American Dietetic Association priority issues regarding children's nutrition are included in the NANA recommendations:
  • Ensure the Dietary Guidelines for Americans are the foundation of federal food assistance and nutrition programs by updating national nutrition standards for all foods sold in schools, such as vending machines, stores, snack bars and a la carte items in cafeterias
  • Setting time frames to encourage the U.S. Department of Agriculture to quickly implement the IOM's recommendations on school meal standards and supporting the nutrition integrity of new WIC food packages
  • Provide adequate funding for program implementation for school meals and WIC food packages
  • Place trained professionals in roles where they make policies by calling for qualified nutrition professionals at the district level for school foodservice
  • Strengthen nutrition education and promotion by funding the Team Nutrition Network authorized in the last Child Nutrition Reauthorization.

The IOM made additional recommendations in areas ADA supports, including:

  • Strengthening nutrition education for students and technical assistance to schools
  • New procedures for monitoring the quality of school meals
  • Adequate reimbursement rates for school meals, since new nutrition standards would cost more for schools to implement.
