Believing Children are Our Future: Serving Equity & Impartiality with Child Meals


We spend our lives investing in society. What happens when we are no more? How can we ensure our time, lives, and talents add value? Few things are more important than the well-being of a child. Children take what is given and absorbed to create what is new. As nutrition and health professionals, how we serve and nurture children determines the returns on our investments. Let’s delve into what it takes to maximize those returns.

Learning Objectives:

1)    Define Social Determinants of Health & systemic racism and explore their impact on equity and on the behaviors and mindsets of those we serve

2)   Examine how implicit bias, racial colorblindness, microaggressions, and the concept of “polite discrimination” influence our interactions

3)   Summarize methods to provide optimal service and care throughout child nutrition environments
