Teachers from all over California were surveyed to assess the final version of the California Nutrition Education Competencies. They provided input regarding its perceived value to them, to the children, and its age-appropriateness for particular grade levels. They also provided feedback on using the competencies to integrate nutrition education with California content standards in English-language arts, science, mathematics, history-social science, health, and physical education.
