Featured Dietitians
Kids Eat Right Volunteers,
Sharing the Monday Message

Kids Eat Right is a joint initiative from the American Dietetic Association (ADA) and American Dietetic Association Foundation. Kids Eat Right supports the efforts of the White House to end the childhood obesity epidemic within a generation. The goal of Kids Eat Right is to educate families, communities, and policy makers about the importance of good nutrition.

The Kids Eat Right website centers around the theme "Shop-Cook-Eat." The goal is to bring families together each day for nutritious meals by providing simple and easily to follow tasks.

How to shop for healthy foods for your family.How to cook foods to get the most nutrient value, including tips and recipes.The benefits of eating together as well as tips to eat when away from home.

Share the Monday Message Campaign involves ADA member volunteers who distribute weekly advice through social media channels (such as Facebook, Twitter, blogs, etc.). The Kids Eat Right campaign provides resources to help ADA members become recognized leaders in childhood obesity prevention. Volunteers then educate the community on shopping ideas, cooking tips, eating right and recipes.

The following slides are examples of Monday Messages shared over the last seven months. Links to the articles are provided below. I encourage you to visit the Kids Eat Right website where you can view all the available messages.
