Director ailing Liu also pointed out the problems and challenges existing in domestic nutrition education, such as the lack of legislation and security system, and the need to implement policies and systems; The nutrition connotation is not rich enough, and the curriculum system is not perfect; There are significant differences in the needs of people, and the forms of activities are not rich enough; The talent team is weak and the scientific research support is insufficient; There is no good interaction system among schools, families and communities.
 
As for how to do well in campus nutrition education in the future, director ailing Liu suggested that work should be carried out from seven aspects:further improving policy support, building a supportive environment, building a systematic knowledge system, optimizing education paths, building a talent team, strengthening expert technical support, and building a supervision and evaluation mechanism.
 
The ultimate goal of food education is to cultivate children’s core qualities. Food education is not simply knowledge transmission, but also needs to be implemented in real life. It requires the joint efforts of schools, families and society to realize the optimization of the effect of children’s nutrition education.
