Nutrition Education and Consumer Awareness
Nutrition education in schools
Children must be considered as tomorrow's adult consumers. Eating habits are learnt early and schools can play an important role in promoting healthy and sustainable food selection and dietary patterns.
FAO's approach to nutrition education in schools aims to create positive attitudes, skills, and promotes lifelong healthy eating behaviours. School-based activities include school gardens, food processing, visits to food shops and markets, food safety and hygiene and food preparation.
