April 2009 SN Cover
National School Breakfast Week and National School Lunch Week Themes Are Here!
It’s time for the details school nutrition professionals have been waiting for!
The April 2009 issue of School Nutrition, SNA’s flagship publication, presents the themes for National School Lunch Week (NSLW) 2009 and National School Breakfast Week (NSBW) 2010. Readers can glean suggestions from the ideas presented or come up with their own creative options. No matter what ideas school nutrition professionals use to plan these upcoming events, students are bound to love the innovative promotions and fun meal plans!
In “All-Star School Lunch!”, readers can learn all about exciting ways to work with other adults in their schools to capitalize on children’s fascination with sports—both as participants and spectators. Daily menu suggestions for making NSLW 2009 a memorable one are also provided.
It was a long, intense campaign, but after a three-year journey, Pete Pizza emerged as the winner of SNA’s “Vote for School Lunch” program. But Pete wasn’t the only successful participant in 2008’s NSLW; readers all over the country came up with their own promotions and involved their staff in creative ways to bring students’ attention to the culinary campaign.
The magazine’s April issue doesn’t just focus on lunch, though. “Ready, Set, Go… School Breakfast!” is packed full of unique ideas and menu options that will inspire readers in making plans for next year’s NSBW.
School nutrition professionals believe not only in the importance of serving students in their local areas, but also in lending a hand to others throughout the country who need it most. “Construction Zone” provides a look at the learning opportunities as well as community service work that took place during this year’s Child Nutrition Industry Conference (CNIC) in New Orleans.
