A survey completed by 464 Nebraska elementary teachers found that 68 percent thought the teaching of nutrition had high priority in the elementary curriculum. Teachers in rural, mid-sized, and urban counties did not differ in attitudes toward nutrition instruction, most instructional practices, their own nutritional training, or available resources. Most teachers did not teach Food Guide Pyramid concepts consistently, with urban teachers teaching them least often. (SV)
