Milestone: Kids Eat Right Volunteers

The Kids Eat Right campaign has topped the 1,000 volunteer mark - an impressive milestone since the initiative's launch at FNCE 2010 in Boston. This accomplishment is due to efforts of a large network of ADA members, DPGs, MIGs, affiliates and the Kids Eat Right RD Communicator and Vanguard networks. ADA and the Foundation are grateful for these members' dedication to the launch and continued success of Kids Eat Right. A complete listing of individuals and groups who were instrumental in the development of Kids Eat Right can be found in the recently released State of Family Nutrition and Physical Activity Report.
