Conference Calls and Webinar

The Food Research and Action Center is holding two upcoming conference calls and a webinar:

  • The Pew Charitable Trusts conducted a systematic literature review on the potential impact of the USDA’s proposed changes to the federal Child and Adult Care Food Program (CACFP) nutrition standards for young children.
  • The Robert Wood Johnson Foundation has released a statement in strong support of the updated nutrition standards for child care facilities participating in CACFP.

Tips and Ideas

  • Alliance for a Healthier Generation gives us "5 Tips for the Healthiest Summer Yet," along with a two-minute animated video on the importance of summer meals.
  • The National AfterSchool Association shows that learning and moving don't have to be separate, with "15 Simple STEM Activities That Get Kids Outside."
  • Action for Healthy Kids tells us about the work they've done with Hanson Park Elementary School to improve wellness and implement healthy eating and physical activity ideas for both students and parents. One teacher's love of Zumba was particularly inspiring and successful.
