About Food, Family and Fun


In communities across the country, families are taking steps to serve healthier meals at home. Now school meals will also be healthier and more appealing. In June 1995, the Federal Government made final its policy ensuring that all school meals meet the Dietary Guidelines for Americans...that means that school breakfasts and lunches will soon be lower in fat and sodium.

To help implement this new rule and improve the health and education of children, the USDA created Team Nutrition. Innovative public and private partnerships are designed to promote food choices for a healthful diet through the media, schools, families and the community.

Food, Family and Fun has been developed by Team Nutrition to help you provide healthful, affordable meals at home, and to answer your children's questions about food and health in fun and entertaining ways.

We asked parents just like you what you wanted. They told us they wanted easy-to-use recipes that could provide families with nutrition information. They also wanted fun activities that could help them learn with their children about healthful eating.

This year the USDA has provided new recipes to all schools in the National School Lunch Program. Some of these recipes are featured in this collection. Yes, you too can prepare some of the recipes your children will be served that are lower in fat and meet the US Dietary Guidelines. Good nutrition begins at home.
