Public health nutrition in schools: the comprehensive health promotion approach
The School Nutrition Workgroup of the Ontario Society of Nutrition Professionals in Public Health supports a comprehensive health promotion approach to school nutrition. This workgroup created Nutrition Tools for Schools (NTS), a toolkit designed to engage the whole school community in creating healthy school nutrition environments. The toolkit has evolved into an online NTS Community, which will launch in September 2012, where school community members can learn, share and become empowered to work together to create healthy school nutrition environments. This presentation will review the comprehensive approach to school nutrition, how it relates to the Ontario Public Health Standards, the Ontario School Food and Beverage Policy and the role for NTS.
