About Improving Nutrition Literacy Among Children, Adolescents, and Young Adults
Children, adolescents, and young adults face a number of challenges related to nutrition, dietary behaviors, and food access. The purpose of this multi-disciplinary working group is to examine issues of nutrition literacy and food access, to conduct pilot studies, and to test methods and questions prior to developing larger studies. The ultimate goal is to design interventions that can alleviate food insecurity and increase nutrition literacy.
