Schools, communities share responsibility for child nutrition
Date:8/9/2010

CHICAGO The American Dietetic Association has published an updated position paper on local support for nutrition integrity in schools that calls on schools and communities to work together to provide healthful and affordable meals for all children and to promote educational environments that help students learn and practice healthy behaviors for their entire lives.

ADA's updated position paper, published in the August issue of the Journal of the American Dietetic Association, represents the Association's official stance on this health issue:

It is the position of the American Dietetic Association that schools and communities have a shared responsibility to provide students with access to high-quality, affordable, nutritious foods and beverages. School-based nutrition services, including the provision of meals through the National School Lunch Program and the School Breakfast Program, are an integral part of the total education program. Strong wellness policies promote environments that enhance nutrition integrity and help students to develop lifelong healthy behaviors.

ADA's position paper was written by registered dietitians Ethan A. Bergman, associate dean and professor of food science and nutrition at Central Washington University; and Ruth W. Gordon, owner of Gordon Consulting LLC, Atlanta, Ga.

"Nutrition integrity means that, when all foods and beverages are consistent with the Dietary Guidelines for Americans, and when nutrition education, physical activity and a healthful school environment are ensured, learning is enhanced and students develop lifelong, healthful eating habits," according to the authors.

ADA believes child nutrition programs are vital to help children stay healthy and prevent excess weight and obesity: Since dietary habits are established early in life, it is important to teach proper nutrition as early as possible. Healthy eating and physical activity can prevent many health problems later
