School-based nutrition interventions are used to improve dietary habits of schoolchildren and reverse trends on obesity. This article reports on kindergarten through 12th grade nutrition interventions published between 2009 and 2018 compared with interventions published between 2000 and 2008 based on (1) behaviorally focused, (2) multicomponent, (3) healthful food/school environment (4) family involvement, (5) self-assessments, (6) quantitative evaluation, (7) community involvement, (8) ethnic/heterogeneous groups, (9) multimedia technology, and (10) sequential and sufficient duration. These 10 recommendations help guide educators, researchers, and nutritionists on more effective nutrition interventions. Future use of implementation science to determine potential drivers of adoption, nonadoption, and effectiveness of the recommendations is encouraged.
