Healthy Edge Course to be Sunset April 30, 2013

April 2, 2013 – The Healthy Edge course is being sunset because the content is outdated and no longer meets the SNA Certification requirements for nutrition core courses, due to several changes in resourced information and regulatory changes such as the new meal pattern.


  • Healthy Edge was originally developed by the School Nutrition Foundation and previously updated through resources from program donors and sponsors.
  • With the growing availability of no cost nutrition courses to SNA members that meet the nutrition core course requirement, the decision was made not to update Healthy Edge.

If you are an online course user:

  • The online course is no longer available for new registrants.
  • Individuals currently registered for the online course have until July 1, 2013, to complete all associated modules.
  • SNA will accept your certificate of completion as applicable nutrition education documentation for certification if issued on or before July 1, 2013.

If you are a SNA Certified Trainer or State Affiliate:

  • SNA Certified Trainers or state affiliates who are currently scheduled to offer Healthy Edge beyond April 30 will need to contact SNA's Certification & Credentialing Manager, Miles Truax, at to discuss details.
  • Unless previously authorized, attendee certificates of completion will not be accepted as applicable nutrition course documentation if issued after April 30, 2013.

Other nutrition education course options:

  • Individuals interested in taking a nutrition core course, and trainers who wish to offer such courses, can find a list of approved nutrition core courses posted on SNA's website.
  • SNA will continue to update trainers as new information is available.
