The Nutrition Education for Children Division promotes communication, cooperation, and exchange of ideas among SNEB members and practitioners interested in nutrition education for children and who provide and/or develop nutrition education materials and programs for children. Our goals are to link nutrition educators, researchers, and practitioners to one another to help improve research, education, and practice. To reach these goals, our division works extensively with SNEB leadership and SNEB divisions to promote skill building, information sharing, advocacy, and communication.
