According the Clare Miller, a nutrition consultant and member of the American Dietetic Association School Nutrition Dietetic Practice Group, the School Nutritional Diet Study found that few schools met the Dietary Guidelines for fiber and sodium set in 2005. She also said that the students in schools generally purchased low nutrient, high calorie foods such as candy bars and cola beverages in deference to healthy foods (Elsevier, 2009).
The importance of teaching about food in primary schools thus becomes even more important. Teaching children about making balanced food choices is integral to the basis of their future health. It was suggested that the ‘tilted plate’ model, adapted to use foods that children frequently eat and enjoy, could be the basis of such teaching. Such a model could also be used to help caterers plan menus and as the basis of co-operation between nutrition educators and caterers.
