Nutrition Education and Nutrition Promotion

Team Nutrition is an initiative of the USDA Food and Nutrition Service to support the Child Nutrition Programs through training and technical assistance for foodservice, nutrition education for children and their caregivers, and school and community support for healthy eating and physical activity. 

The Dietary Guidelines for Americans have been published every five years as a joint effort between the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) and the Department of Agriculture (USDA). The guidelines serve as the basis for federal food and nutrition education programs.

Fuel up to Play 60: The NFL Movement for an Active Generation, created in partnership by the National Dairy Council (NDC) and the National Football League (NFL), empowers youth to take actions to improve nutrition and physical activity in their school and personal lives.
