Newly Published Canned Food Nutrition Research

New research published in the June 2016 print edition of the Journal of the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics offers evidence of the important role canned fruits and vegetables can play in the healthy diet of not only adults, but children, too. With the anticipated finalization this summer of the Child Nutrition Reauthorization Act, which authorizes federally funded child nutrition programs, this research demonstrates how enjoying all forms of fruits and vegetables – including canned – can result in better dietary quality for our nation’s children.
