April 2010 SN Cover
NSLW and NSBW 2010-11
April is an exciting time of year for many reasons—spring has arrived, the end of the school year is in sight for students and the themes and menus for the upcoming National School Lunch Week (NSLW) and National School Breakfast Week (NSBW) are revealed. The April issue of School Nutrition, SNA’s award-winning flagship publication, provides details about these exciting events and offers ideas for planning related promotions and activities.
“School Lunch: What’s on Your Plate?” showcases the theme for this October’s NSLW that’s sure to resonate with students and staff alike. This year’s theme not only offers great menu options, but also provides fun ideas to celebrate the unique and varied interests of your students.
Speaking of NSLW, school nutrition professionals scored a slam dunk with the promotions and fun menu ideas they came up with for last year’s event. Check out “Nothing But Net for School Nutrition” for a replay of all of the action.
But lunch isn’t the only school meal that’s available to many students, of course. Breakfast is an essential part of your students’ day, and in “School Breakfast Detectives,” junior detectives Marlowe and Cassie team up to help teach your students all about how healthy breakfasts give them the energy they need to be their best. The article also features recipes designed to get your students in the breakfast spirit.
In addition to serving and planning breakfast and lunch in their districts, a number of school nutrition professionals headed to Jacksonville, Fla., earlier this year for SNA’s Child Nutrition Industry Conference (CNIC). Take a look at the highlights of this important event in “CNIC Tops the Leaderboard.”
