The Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics Foundation is committed to promoting a healthy today and tomorrow for our children. Public education through foundation, community and corporate partners is the first step.
The Kids Eat Right campaign was launched to support public education projects and programs that address the national health concern of obesity among our children.

Online Screening Tool
The Family Nutrition and Physical Activity Online Screening Tool is a tool developed as a result of an ongoing research partnership of the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics and its Foundation with Iowa State University. The instrument includes items that evaluate family policies and environments that influence children’s physical activity, diet and sedentary behavior and can predict potential adverse changes in a child’s risk for overweight.
