Good nutrition is a prerequisite for children to grow, develop, and learn. The school-age years are marked by growth and provide the window of opportunity for establishing lifelong healthy eating habits. This session will focus on implementation and scaling up comprehensive school nutrition policies, school-based nutrition education, regulating healthy food in school settings, and delivering school-based nutrition-related health services.
