The Texas Department of Agriculture (TDA) Food and Nutrition Division’s Student Engagement Initiative (SEI) empowers students with resources and activities they can use to take an active role in their school nutrition programs and build a healthier future for all Texas children.
SEI implements projects that motivate students, at the local level, to champion the benefits of a healthy lifestyle. The initiative provides opportunities for students to:
- Participate in contests that celebrate school meals
- Take an active role in school nutrition
- Connect with the Texas Department of Agriculture
Through SEI activities Texas students champion good school nutrition and healthy lifestyles. These activities also advance the Food and Nutrition Division’s overall goal of being a national leader in creating meaningful school nutrition programs. SEI recognizes that today’s youth have a powerful voice, and when they talk, adults and peers listen.
