Professional training to support food service staff and school meal programs.
Healthy eating at school begins in the cafeteria. Professional development trainings empower food service staff to support school meal programs and promote access to healthy foods in schools.
The Healthy Eating Made Easier: Plan Your Plate training is a 30- to 45-minute session that discusses the importance of learning about and promoting nutrition in the cafeteria. Designed for front line cafeteria staff, the training presents easy-to-remember strategies that can assist staff in encouraging healthy eating patterns. It discusses ways the cafeteria impacts the health and wellness of students and communities and covers specific actions that will make a difference for students on their journey to wellness.
Low- or no-cost ways to promote the consumption of healthy school lunch options and reduce plate waste use the evidence-based principles and practices of the Smarter Lunchrooms Movement. A smarter lunchroom nudges students to make healthier choices on their own by changing the way that food choices are presented. Join the Smarter Lunchrooms Movement in California.
