Fifth Graders and Parents Needed for USDA Survey Dec. 10
The USDA is conducting a nutrition survey to learn about the eating habits of children and adults. Given that only 5 percent of Americans follow the recommended dietary guidelines, we are interested in learning about the factors that prevent and promote compliance with the guidelines. By completing the survey, participants can also help the USDA provide public school students with greater access to nutritious and wholesome foods in school cafeterias.
What: Help Americans eat towards a healthier lifestyle by 1) completing a survey about your eating habits and lifestyle, and 2) getting your height and weight measured. All surveys are completely anonymous and will be kept confidential. Entire process will take less than two hours. The survey will be administered to both student and parent/caregiver.
Who: 5th grade students in DC metro area public schools AND their parent/caregiver
