While never diminishing our commitment to the
culinary profession and the art and craft of cooking,
collaborations with nutrition scientists, public health
experts, and government policy makers are an
increasingly important part of the CIA as we work to
improve the health and wellness of our nation. The
CIA develops strategies and solutions to increase the
presence—and success—of healthy menu choices
throughout the foodservice sector.
Healthy Kitchens, Healthy Lives is a collaboration between the CIA and Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health. During this annual CME conference, health professionals participate in nutrition and health research seminars led by some of Harvard’s most influential scientists and other leading nutrition experts, as well as hands-on cooking workshops.
This ground-breaking strategic leadership summit encompasses wall-to-wall cooking, tastings, and culinary strategy discussion—all based on the evidence-based framework of optimal innovation embodied in the 24 Principles of Healthy, Sustainable Menus of the CIA Harvard T.H. Chan School Menus of Change Initiative.
The CIA Healthy Menus R&D Collaborative is a dynamic membership-based initiative focused on crafting highly targeted, sector-specific, practical solutions that significantly contribute towards expanding healthy menu food and beverage choices within the foodservice industry.
The CIA Healthy Kids Collaborative is an invitational initiative designed to accelerate innovation and deepen technical and professional expertise in K-12 school food. It is a unique and focused multi-year collaboration between school nutrition professionals, school chefs, suppliers, and other stakeholders to create and advance culinary driven, healthier foods for kids.
