Kaiser Permanente Cafeteria Menu Labeling

Kaiser Permanente (KP) Cafeteria Menu Labeling is a PSE change intervention developed collaboratively by KP National Nutrition Services Procurement & Supply and National Community Benefit Departments to help patrons make informed decisions about their purchases with the goal of shifting purchasing to lower calorie and healthier options. The KP Cafeteria Menu Labeling intervention provides cafeteria customers with detailed nutrient content information, including calories, at the point-of-decision-making. The intervention was developed to help inform food/beverage purchasing decisions in KP hospital sites for those visiting the cafeteria, including employees, health plan members, and visitors.

School Nutrition Policy Initiative (SNPI)

The School Nutrition Policy Initiative (SNPI) was a policy, systems, and environmental (PSE) change intervention designed to improve prevalence of childhood obesity in school age children in Philadelphia.  Components of the SNPI included 1) school self-assessment, 2) nutrition education, 3) nutrition policy, 4) social marketing, and 5) parent outreach. The goals of SNPI were to change the school food environment to promote healthy eating and increase physical activity and to provide teachers with training and tools to implement classroom-based nutrition education. The primary policy initiatives implemented were 1) replacing all sugar-sweetened beverages in school vending machines and cafeterias with water, low-fat milk, and 100% milk, 2) creating a snack policy that restricts candy sales in schools and places guidelines on the snacks served and sold, and 3) providing 10 hours of nutrition education training for teachers to support the integration of 50 hours of interdisciplinary nutrition education per year per classroom
