Student Recommendations for Improving Nutrition in America's K-12 Schools
NCSSSMST Journal, v12 n1 p16-21 Fall 2006
Co-hosted by the National Consortium for Specialized Secondary Schools of Mathematics, Science, and Technology (NCSSSMST) and The Keystone Center, the third annual Keystone Center Youth Policy Summit focused on Adolescent and Childhood Nutrition in America's K-12 Schools. In June 2006, 40 students from 10 math and science schools came together in Keystone, Colorado, to develop recommendations for solutions to this ever-increasing problem in the United States. After months of research and study, students spent the week of June 19 to 23 working in stakeholder groups, discussing, arguing, developing, and finally reaching resolutions and recommendations. This article presents student recommendations for improving nutrition in America's K-12 schools. The article also presents questions/issues the students considered in their deliberations. (Contains 2 footnotes.)
