Nutrition and Web 2.0

Ann Flynn, of the NSBA, asked me about K-12 Nutrition Staff who are using Web 2.0 tools to communicate with students or parents.  Are your schools Twittering menus, soliciting comments on the quality of their meals through blogging, offering social bookmark links or RSS feeds for nutrition related sites, adding resources to the school’s Facebook network, or soliciting contributions to the cafeteria’s policies via a wiki?

How do you think K-12 nutrition staff might use the collaborative web to improve their services?

  1. I think people in nutrition education should set up a wiki where they could post “healthy” recipes that high school students like to eat. Then our cafeteria staff could prepare these things and serve them in the cafeteria.

    In fact, cafeterias in high schools could test out healthy recipes and have the student body use online surveys to vote on and or suggest revisions to the food served in the cafeteria.

  2. My school has a share point server dedicated to our students. It doesn’t contain nutritional information but it might as well be a great addition.

    I’ll keep this in mind!
