May 2010 SN Cover
What are the most essential issues currently facing school nutrition professionals? The May issue of School Nutrition, SNA’s award-winning flagship publication, takes a look at some of these key topics, including the important partnerships that SNA has become part of to help address unhealthy childhood weights. Plus, learn about what techniques your school nutrition colleagues use to introduce healthier foods to kids, and see the highlights of SNA’s 38th Legislative Action Conference, which featured an appearance and speech by First Lady Michelle Obama.
There’s still plenty of time left in 2010, but SNA is already celebrating a major opportunity, detailed in “A Place at the Table.” Michelle Obama invited the association to become an active participant in her “Let’s Move!” campaign, a comprehensive, collaborative and community-oriented effort to address childhood obesity. By examining the four “pillars” that affect childhood obesity—healthy choices, healthier schools, physical activity and affordable and accessible food—the team of participating partners will work to solve the challenge of childhood obesity within a generation.
