Nutrition Education

Lindsey Kennedy, RD, is the Community FoodBank of New Jersey’s (CFBNJ) Nutrition Programs Manager and leads our nutrition and health education efforts.

Good nutrition is the foundation on which to build a life of good health. Parents have a unique opportunity to shape the lives of their children by exposing them to healthy, nutritious foods early in life. Offering whole grain products, fruits, vegetables and low-fat dairy products — instead of high-fat, processed or fast foods — can decrease the risk of becoming overweight. This can also lower the risk of health problems, such as diabetes, high blood pressure or heart problems later in life.
