Conference Track:
Policy and System Changes - Impacts and Opportunities

This session will highlight how Dakota County (MN) successfully implemented a research-based preschool nutrition program that helps children develop healthy eating habits by teaching them to taste, eat, and enjoy more fruits and vegetables. The LANA (Learning about Nutrition through Activities) Program was piloted with 75 licensed child care providers and the 500 children and families they served. Participants who attend this session will learn more about the strategies, tools, and evaluation outcomes from this creative program.
