Creating a Taste-Testing Event: A Resource for School Nutrition Professionals
The Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act (HHFKA) of 2010 sets nutrition standards for schools, requiring school nutrition professionals to serve a greater variety of fruits and vegetables
– and more of them. It also provides resources to establish local farm-to-school networks and school gardens, set minimal standards for school wellness policies, including nutrition education, and outline methods to create a healthier school wellness environment. Overall the HHFKA strives to provide children with healthier and more nutritious food options, educate children about making healthy food choices, and teach children healthy habits that will last a lifetime.
