Let's Talk About School Lunch

Team Up for School Lunch!

Good nutrition is essential to your child's physical health and mental development. The U.S. Department of Agriculture's Food and Nutrition Service Undersecretary Shirley Watkins, and President of the American School Food Service Association Marilyn Hurt are visiting Parent Soup to discuss school lunches and nutritional needs. Join us on Thursday, October 5 at 1pm ET in our Special Events chat room to discuss these topics and more:

• National School Lunch Week (October 9-13) -- why it's important and what activities some schools are planning

• The link between nutrition and education

• Food trends -- how technology and equipment have changed school meals

• The training of school food service professionals

• The proposed International School Lunch Program

• Healthy school eating environments -- meal schedules and time allotted for eating

• How parents and educators can encourage children to balance food and physical activity

Make this chat your lunch break!
We promise good food for thought.
