This is a collection of Food Service Guidelines (FSG) products used by states.

Through support of Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s (CDC) Division of Nutrition, Physical Activity and Obesity (DNPAO), the Association of State Public Health Nutritionists (ASPHN) conducted an assessment of state health agencies regarding the food service guidelines (FSG) strategy.

 

Additional healthy FSG guidelines are available here.

 This Food Service Guidelines (FSG) resource page addresses one need identified from the assessment:
To provide a collection of resources provided by states, highlighting FSG success stories, guideline development and partner collaboration efforts.  These FSG resources are identified by the FSG category or setting they are implemented in: worksite, cafeteria, blind, vending, healthy meetings, procurement, hospital, faith-based, food pantry, parks, and community.  (Note: many resources may fit into multiple categories.)
