Team Nutrition Training and Grant Opportunities

 

Smarter Lunchroom Training

  • Did you know you can increase your students’ vegetable consumption 40-70% simply by creatively naming your vegetables and displaying these names near the food?  This is just one sample of a Smarter Lunchroom technique.  The Smarter Lunchroom Movement seeks to equip school lunchrooms with evidence-based tools that improve child eating behaviors and thus improve the health of children.  Please view the WI Team Nutrition training to learn more about the Smarter Lunchroom movement and how to implement the techniques in your school. View the Blackboard Collaborate recording of the training.
