Cardiovascular health promotion for school children. 1. The Heart Smart nutrition intervention



Cardiovascular health promotion for school children. 1. The Heart Smart nutrition intervention



School food service research review 13(2): 130-136



A school based health promotion program, Heart Smart, introduced unique aspects of training and teaching that formed a complementary approach for cardiovascular health promotion. The school cafeteria and the classroom were effective vehicles for accomplishing institutional change, with teacher, food service worker, and student interaction. Health-risk eating behaviors of children were addressed and monitored to measure positive change. Individual health goals for reducing heart disease risk factors may become permanent tenets of the school environment and enhance achievement of national health objectives beginning in childhood.
