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.

Team Nutrition's Goal is to improve children's lifelong eating and physical activity habits by using the principles of the Dietary Guidelines for Americans and MyPyramid. To accomplish this goal, Team Nutrition has developed this site and two sister sites:

  • The Team Nutrition site reaches a broad audience with information on nutrition education, healthy eating and physical activity. Schools are the key focal point.

  • The Healthy Meals Resource System provides technical assistance support and materials for school foodservice and child care professionals.
