Let's work together to advance healthy childhood nutrition!
This Healthy Childhood Nutrition course is for anyone interested in raising healthy, plant-based children and improving the nutritional quality of the meals children consume. Learn about how food affects childhood development and mental health, tips and tricks for feeding your kids while traveling, and how to navigate social settings with family and friends. This course also contains resources for working with school nutrition programs to improve the quality of food served at the school(s) in your community. Learn how to form a school food committee, how to work with your school's food service director, institute a Meatless Monday Campaign, and more.
