School food -- on the front line in the fight against childhood obesity
Date:8/15/2012

ework for developing an evidence base to support a link between Farm to School programs and prevention of childhood obesity.

In the interview entitled "Salad Bars in Schools," Rodney Taylor, Director of Nutrition Services at Riverside, CA, Unified School District, discusses how his Farm to School salad bar model is unique, offering an option to the traditional hot lunch, and has been shown to yield a sustainable improvement in health and nutritional behaviors in children.

Original research articles include "School Lunches and Lunches Brought from Home: A Comparative Analysis," in which authors from Baylor College of Medicine and The Cluthe & William B. Oliver Foundation, Houston, TX, examine differences in nutritional quality between school lunches and home-prepared lunches. "Local Wellness Policy Strength and Perceived Implementation of School Nutrition Standards across Three States," evaluating the influence of federally mandated local wellness policies on reimbursable school meals and nutritional guidelines for competitive foods, was coauthored by a team of researchers from Iowa State University (Ames), Pennsylvania State University (University Park), and University of California, Berkeley.
