Do you often find yourself telling inspiring stories of health and wellness, training the leaders who work every day to provide healthy and nutritious meals, or sharing your knowledge of the CACFP or SFSP? Join us as a presenter at the National Child Nutrition Conference in San Diego! We're now accepting presentation proposals for workshops, shop talks and training academies. Check out our Presenter Information page for more details.

National Child Nutrition Conference workshop topics

Workshops are the most important program element of the National Child Nutrition Conference. Attendees enjoy hearing from presenters who:

  • Tell stories and use pictures
  • Communicate the objective of their presentation
  • Share information that has practical application
  • Provide factual information and resources
  • Engage the audience

In the past, workshops have fallen into several different educational tracks, including Research and Resources, Nutrition, Financial Management, At-Risk Afterschool, Program Spotlight, Train-the-Trainer, Policy and Advocacy, Head Start, Summer Food, and Admin and Operations. If you have a wonderful idea that shares an important story or information with the child nutrition community, but you’re not sure how it might fit into a broader category, share it anyway!

Our attendees benefit from a wide array of speakers and topics. This is how we collaborate and elevate as a network of professionals and providers.
