Supervising adults are not trained to support healthy eating. Students are not allowed to talk or socialize during meals.

Meals are consumed in a hurry to get outside or back to classroom.

Good food in a safe, welcoming atmosphere - showing that schools value the importance of nutrition. Calm, comfortable tone that allows

socialization and conversations. Unrushed feeling so adults and children have time to enjoy meals.

focus in the classroom. A learning laboratory for healthy eating habits and acceptable mealtime behaviors.

Based on the Ellyn Satter Approach to Feeding and the Division of Responsibility in Feeding www.ellynsatter.com Creating Comfortable Cafeterias to Improve Child Nutrition Ellyn Satter Approach Kids eat better when they are not pressured.

Kids eat unpredictably, waste food, and are leery of trying new foods. Kids naturally stop eating and drinking when they are full. Creating Comfortable Cafeterias to Improve Child Nutrition Division of Responsibility in Feeding Adults decide the what, when, and where of feeding at school.

Differently than adults: Cautious about new food and about new people cooking it, esp. in preschool and early elementary. Learn by repeated exposure and

experience with new food (at least 7-10 times). Like to be in control of their eating, with supportive adults present, in a pleasant setting, with enough time to eat.
