Nutrition education in primary schools

I was surfing when I landed FAO's page on teaching good eating habits to reduce malnutrition and diet-related diseases. The article published in Oct 2007 in Rome stated that FAO is publishing (published)a planning guide for nutrition education in primary schools.


Educating school children in healthy nutrition is one of the most effective strategies for overcoming malnutrition and chronic diet-related diseases but has been neglected far too long, FAO said today.

The UN agency announced the publication of a new comprehensive guide for curriculum development addressing nutrition education in primary school.
...

Good nutrition education can make children aware of how to achieve a nourishing diet with limited means; how to prepare and handle food safely and how to avoid food-related risks.

As future parents, they will know about the benefits of breastfeeding and complementary feeding, and be able to educate their children to follow a diet that is well balanced and of good quality.


The guidelines can be downloaded in parts HERE. Hopefully this will be beneficial to nutrition grads and postgrads who are undertaking research focusing on primary school children.
