In the short term, I am looking forward to completing my dietetic internship and gaining the experience of working in a clinical setting. In the long term, I would be interested in being in a school environment encouraging children to make better food choices. Specifically, I would like to be able to help influence the younger generation make healthier food choices. A great place to make an impact is in the school system; one way to promote this is by designing healthier menus. I participated in the school hot lunch program this year in my son’s first grade class and saw how many elementary school students chose the chocolate chip cookie as one of their first snack options. I would like to be able to educate and guide people of all ages to make smarter food choices and live a healthier lifestyle.
