Food Security and Insecurity
Gardening, is it a hobby or does it serve to optimize health? We know that while childhood obesity is prevalent in the United States, under nutrition is the leading cause of death in many
countries around the world. The farm-to-table movement and garden nutrition education is happening in schools across America, yet are we capturing kids to make a lasting impact on health? How
do we as nutrition professionals take our knowledge of nutrition and apply it in a way that can have a true impact in garden nutrition education? Learn about when a garden has the greatest
impact on a child's life, how to perform a 'soil' or self-analysis to evaluate what you can do to make an impact in your community or across the globe and determine the best interventions that
will have a lasting influence on health. Nutrition professionals play a leading role in making gardening more than just a hobby. Leave with an action plan to grow this effort to make a lasting
impact in the ever-growing garden movement, both near and far.
Identify healthy living risk factors for youth all across the globe.
List at least three practical interventions nutrition professionals can employ to make an impact on the health of children, both in the US and in the international arena.
Develop an action plan to begin a seed-to-table garden approach to impact nutrition education on a community and global level.
