To provide educational/informational tools and resources that empower school food service directors and staff, school administrators, teachers, health professionals, and wellness committees to make changes that encourage children to make healthier food selections in school food environments, without undermining revenue. Given the role parents and the children themselves have in the food choices they make, the CoP will also develop and make available tools and resources that they can use to improve nutrition at school and at home.


To become the one-stop source for eating behavior insights, interventions and practical steps for food service providers, policy makers, health professionals and parents to promote healthy food choices in school food environments.
