Proceedings of National Nutrition Education Conference (6th, Washington, D.C., November 2-4, 1971).
Department of Agriculture, Washington, DC.
The conference provided an opportunity for nutritionists and workers in allied professions at the local, State, and national levels to come together to identify and consider effective techniques for working with youth in the development of food habits. Participants raised and explored some of the youth-oriented problems related to nutrition, identified some of the effective ways of working with youth and the adaptability of these programs to a variety of district problems, and discussed ways in which youth-oriented nutrition programs might possibly be initiated and financed. Specific presentations concern the values, life styles, eating habits, and health of youth today; adolescent growth and development; and responsibility for developing the dietary habits of youth. In addition, ideas for nutrition education, programs, actions, and techniques are presented by Federal, school, industry, and voluntary agency representatives. (Author/MLF)
