Marks' colleagues from Ketchum and others across industries honored her legacy as one of the first to market food using nutrition science, and remembered her smart counsel and "unassuming" wisdom.

Design and Evaluation of a Training Protocol for a Photographic Method of Visual Estimation of Fruit and Vegetable Intake among Kindergarten Through Second-Grade Students
Fruit and vegetable intake data can be invasive and time-consuming to collect; however, more methods in visual estimation of intake have been used to mitigate some of the issues associated with data collection. Having a training protocol for fruit and vegetable intake is essential in the reliable collection and assessment of intake data among raters.
National Farm to School Month: Early Care Education Edition
- Describe the importance of assessing fruit and vegetable intake in the lunchroom setting for school research.
- Describe the development of a training protocol for visual estimation of fruit and vegetable intake.
- Identify implications for research when creating a training protocol in use of lab or school settings and items to consider.

October is National Farm to School Month, a time to celebrate the connections happening all over the country between children and local food. It is also a great time to learn more about farm to early care and education (ECE), a suite of activities and strategies that entails three core elements, including the use of local foods in meals and snacks, gardening opportunities, and food-based learning activities implemented in the ECE setting. Join speakers from the National Farm to School Network and Arizona State University to learn about opportunities to celebrate National Farm to School Month and to learn more about the vast array of benefits of farm to ECE for children, families and communities.

The Communications Division Presents
From Millennials to Boomers: Digital Communication for Nutrition Educators Across Generations
Speakers: Joanne Larsen, M.S., R.D.N., "Ask the Dietitian" and Health and Nutrition Technology Developer and Elsa Ramirez Brisson, PhD, RD, Food FUNdamentals and Chair-elect Communications Division and topic specific experts TBA
When you wake up in the morning, where do you turn to get the latest news? Do you scroll through your Facebook feed? Or open a newspaper? The answer to this question may be highly correlated with your age.
Join the Communications Division for a lively discussion about how the use of digital communication tools among nutrition educators differs across the age spectrum — and what generational groups can learn from one another. Joanne Larsen and Elsa Ramirez will share a brief presentation on the evolution of digital communication tools for nutrition educators to frame the conversation.
SNEB Journal Club 5: Teacher Perceptions of Multilevel Policies and the Influence on Nutrition Education in Preschools
- Participants will be able to provide examples of several ways in which age/generational groups differ in their use of digital communication tools (e.g. social media, websites, mobile apps, etc.)
- Participants will be able to discuss unique challenges to adopting digital communication tools for at least two different age groups (e.g. older generations and social media).

Webinar based on this JNEB article
Interrelated themes were condensed into three broad categories, and a substantive-level model emerged to explain how policy-related factors (i.e. actual policies vs. policy perceptions) influenced nutrition education (e.g. frequency, strategies) and child-related outcomes (i.e. learning outcomes, exposure). Multilevel policies and teachers’ perceptions of those policies directly and indirectly affect the quality and frequency of nutrition education. For instance, teachers described sanitation policies that limited or restricted the use of food-based activities (e.g. taste testing, cooking), while policies regarding hygiene (e.g. hand washing) and regulatory schedules created time constraints in the classroom. Findings suggest that teachers perceive their ability to provide quality nutrition education in the classroom is most affected by policies at the state and center-level.
- Review past and current federal food and nutrition related policies (i.e. Child and Adult Care Food Program, Head Start Performance Standards) and their potential impact on nutrition education in the preschool setting.
- Discuss methods and results of a qualitative examination of teacher perceptions of multi-level policies in NC-based Head Start preschools.
- Describe action areas nutrition educators can take to improve food and nutrition related policy in the Head Start environment.

What is a food trend? It's a change in what we eat over time that becomes permanent and pervasive throughout the culture. Contrast this with a food fad which is temporary — of high interest and then quickly falls off the radar. When reading articles about trends that impact food, nutrition and health, keep the source in mind. PR firms may be seeking to promote their items. Data-driven trends are best, yet often data is unavailable.
