If the elementary teacher is to play a significant role in nutrition education, assessing their current status of nutrition knowledge is imperative. Such a data base can assist in determining the nature of educational efforts to adequately prepare elementary teachers for their role as nutrition educators. The primary objective of this research is to determine the present level of nutrition knowledge of elementary teachers in South Dakota. The findings of this study can assist state nutrition education program development by providing: (1) a representative picture of the nutrition knowledge of elementary teachers-presently in the field. (2) information regarding the major sources (past and present) of nutrition information for the elementary teacher. ( 3 ) suggestions, for future training that would be most acceptable to the elementary teacher.
