The National Evaluation of School Nutrition Programs. Review of Research: Executive Summary.
Literature review components of the National Evaluation of School Nutrition Programs (a 30-month evaluation of the National School Lunch, School Breakfast, and Special Milk Programs) are summarized in this document. Chapters of the literature review describe the operations of school nutrition programs; examine the various methods for assessing the nutritional status of school-age children; summarize data on the nutritional status of school-age students from previous studies; discuss the results from previous studies of the effects of nutrition programs on students, families, schools, and school districts; and examine issues related to the targeting of program benefits toward recipients. The final chapter of the review outlines the kinds of additional research necessary for a more complete understanding of program operation and impact. (RH)
