In your career, you play a critical role to ensure that all children have access to healthy foods. Those foods are vital to providing the nutrients kids need as they grow, and into adulthood. Most of us know about macronutrients (carbs, proteins, and fats) and micronutrients (vitamins and minerals) but do you know in which foods they can be found and how they work in the body? Learn what fruits, vegetables, grains, meats/meat alternates and fluid milk contribute so you can put nutrients together for optimal health when building a menu. Get examples and a visual handout showing what food components do for the body.
