Advocates for effective nutrition programs are in a constant battle to maintain funding and program integrity in the face of competing interests from policy makers and food industry. The best strategy for facing these challenges is to use program outcomes to engage decision makers and stakeholders in dialogue about how best to fund and operate these programs. Upcoming reauthorization of child nutrition and older adult programs presents an excellent opportunity for Society members and other nutrition educators and change agents to consider how they can examine the various facets of their programs and craft messages and strategies to positively influence policy decisions.
