It’s National Fruits and Veggies Month and this year’s theme, Every Time You Eat, Have A Plant®, shares ways to incorporate daily fruits and vegetables. As nutrition professionals, there’s still much work to do as we face a national decline in vegetable and fruit consumption. Learn more about this crisis and tap into ASPHN’s Checklist for Change for innovative strategies and tactics to increase your community’s access and consumption of produce!
Maria Distler, MSW and Mary Neumaier, RD of the National Kidney Foundation of Michigan are increasing access to local fruits and vegetables in their state’s early care and education centers. Maria and Mary leveraged Go NAPSACC and ASPHN’s’ Farm to ECE Capacity Building Grant to develop partnerships, resources, trainings, networking, and more! This incredible work is increasing young children’s exposure to local produce, health education, and hands-on learning!
Recognition programs are an uplifting way to highlight and inspire healthier eating! ASPHN’s 2023 Snapshot Of Farm To ECE State Recognition Programs shares how four state teams participating in our Farm to Early Care and Education Grantee Program created effective and noteworthy awards programs and ceremonies. Get inspired by this innovative approach to raising awareness among parents, state agencies, and state legislators!

Angel Cunningham, MS, RD, LD and Jamie Stang, PhD, MPH, RDN were recently interviewed and cited in a Wall Street Journal article about the use of artificial intelligence for meal planning.

Great professional development opportunities, internships for students, and actual program development through COIIN.
I love the resources and learning opportunities that ASPHN provides to its members. I also enjoy the networking and support that's provided.
ASPHN is so beneficial for my work as a public health nutritionist! The presentations at the annual meeting and webinars during the year are always on point for the work I do. Getting involved in ASPHN Councils, Committees and Board have provided great opportunities to network with wonderful colleagues from around the country. I'm a better professional for joining ASPHN!
Since my role as the Nutrition Services Coordinator for my state’s WIC program is 100% WIC, the MCH Nutrition Council has been a good opportunity to learn about the other MCH programs out there and determine ways to collaborate and reduce barriers for the mutual clientele we serve.
ASPHN has been providing me many learning opportunities, many network/working together opportunities, many opportunities that I was able to practice what I learned, leadership skills.... AND developing friendships. I do appreciate all ASPHN has giving to me for more than 10 years.
