Ambitious New Project Tackles Hunger on College Campuses

Ambitious New Project Tackles Hunger on College Campuses | College Cabbage | Scoop.it
A new project at Humboldt State University is seeking ways to attack college food insecurity from all angles. That means providing food aid, offering health education and cooking lessons, conducting original research on college hunger, and seeking ways to change state and national policies that make it difficult for students to access help.
Chris Sitek's insight:
Very alarming piece that was composed here, some statistics that stood out to me were: 1 in 3 students said that it was often or sometimes true that, during the last 12 months, the food they had purchased didn’t last and they didn’t have money for more. • 1 in 5 students said that they have regularly skipped meals because there wasn’t enough money for food. • 1 in 14 students said that, at least once during the last 12 months, they did not eat for a whole day because there wasn’t enough money for food. To me, its of vast importance that students have the options and resources necessary to eat and eat well.

5 Nudges To Get Kids To Eat Better At School

5 Nudges To Get Kids To Eat Better At School | College Cabbage | Scoop.it
Kids won't do what you tell them. But you can subtly convince them to make healthier choices without them knowing.
Chris Sitek's insight:

This is a very interesting and informative piece:

My favorite techniques were "The Bundle Food Option" were kids are more on the emphasis of full meals to reduce unhealthy snacks or the "Renaming Vegetables" where simple rewording will improve more healthier eating habits.

 

Even, simplistic techniques such as positioning milk in a certain way can improve healthy habits at a young age which will pay dividends through their growth.
