Schools can help teach students the importance of eating healthier by making eating healthy fun and easy to do. CDC’s new research briefs on Making Time for School Lunch and Nutrition Education in U.S. Schools give information on the importance of students having adequate time to eat lunch while at school and how nutrition education can help students establish healthy eating behaviors.
Both resources include a downloadable, easy-to-read flyer that can be shared with educators and advocates.
