Nutrition Education Guide.
Edmonds School District 15, Lynnwood, WA.
This study guide is an attempt to relate the serving of adequate and nutritious meals to the total education process and to teach the importance of and the necessity for establishing lifetime nutrition practices. Designed for school food service personnel, it outlines an approach to nutrition education at various levels from preschool through college, adult education, and dietetic internship. Following an introduction of basic aims, beliefs, and factors involved in an effective school lunch program, the booklet is divided into lesson plans for teaching the different age levels. Each lesson plan contains objectives, procedures for meeting objectives, and evaluation experiences. It identifies many opportunities to teach nutrition in school food service, but the school lunch is the only vehicle used. In addition to the lesson plans, nutrition information, description of the Type A meal pattern, meal planning pointers, references, and teaching resources are given. (BL)
