Please note that this study was published before the implementation of Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act of 2010, which went into effect during the 2012-13 school year, and its provision for Smart Snacks Nutrition Standards for Competitive Food in Schools, implemented during the 2014-15 school year. As such, certain research may not be relevant today.
The hallmark of a research journal is that manuscripts are peer reviewed. This peer review process helps to ensure that manuscripts are relevant, timely, and of high quality and that the results of the research are applicable to practitioners in child nutrition programs. This critical peer review process is very time consuming, and we would like to extend sincere appreciation to the professionals who reviewed manuscripts for The Journal of Child Nutrition & Management in 2012. We invite individuals who are interested in serving as a reviewer to contact the Journal editor.
Sincere appreciation is extended to the following reviewers:
