Theme II: Child Nutrition




Choose to be a healthy role model. Post the CATCH CATCH My Healthy Living Commitment sign to share how you model healthy habits. 

Make a point to demonstrate healthy habits in front of students. Let students “CATCH” you…
  • Drinking water instead of sweetened beverages; eating fruits and vegetables at lunch.
  • Post (at least) one picture or video on social media of a nutrition services CATCH MVP engaged in a healthy activity. Use #CATCHMVP.



Introduce CATCH. 



Decorate your cafeteria with examples of healthy foods and behaviors.

Some ideas:
  • Invite the Art teacher to have students create artwork for the cafeteria.
  • Visit for resources and check out the ideas in the Promotion section of the Eat Smart Guidebook.



Monitor portion distortion. Food portion sizes have increased significantly over the last 20 years. Be “super wise” before you “super size.”

Some ideas...

  • Take the Portion Distortion Quiz
  • Read food labels for portion size.
  • Split meals at restaurants or plan to take half of the meal home.
