Plan and implement a nutritious breakfast program with help from school nutrition professionals by delivering reimbursable meals to classrooms for students to enjoy before or after class.
Grab and Go is not just for breakfast anymore! Set up quick and easy meals to grab on the way in to school or in between morning classes for breakfast, to speed up the cafeteria lines during lunch, or after school for a pre-game pick-me-up or a take-home nutrient-rich meal.
Work with school nutrition staff and administrators to create salad-bar-style breakfast and lunch meals. Select delicious, healthy options for your bar. Incorporating popular taste tests, this Play is focused on creating sustainable change to school menus.
This Play was developed in collaboration with the Cornell University Smarter Lunchrooms Movement- and these are ideas that have been shown to work! This Play highlights simple techniques that can change and improve behavior when it comes to making better food choices.
Form a team of "Snack Smart Student Investigators" and utilize a "School Snacking Investigation" to identify snack and a la carte foods offered in school and then make sure they are the most nutritious offerings possible. Special thanks to the Kids' Safe & Healthful Foods Project for their input on this Play and the School Snacking Investigation.
