New research to be presented at Society for Nutrition Education and Behavior
Studies include school gardens, NYC nutrition education programs, community supported agriculture, a science-based nutrition curriculum and wellness policy, an online nutrition game and more.
Student work includes the first look at an in-depth exploration of NYC school gardens, a study on nutrition education programs in NYC schools, and research on how families come to "own" vegetables like kale and kohlrabi through the experience of joining a community supported agriculture program. Several students and faculty will be revealing facets of a USDA-funded intervention, Food, Health & Choices, including development of the innovative sicence-based 5th grade curriculum, parent engagement and student outcomes.
