Operating a Breakfast in the Classroom Program: Everything You Want to Know about Implementation

Wednesday, October 14, 2015, 2:00 pm ET

Now that you are committed to implementing a Breakfast in the Classroom program (or still thinking about it), it’s time to think through the details of operations. Hear from child nutrition professionals who are operating the program as they discuss menu ideas, equipment suggestions, counting and claiming strategies, and new school nutrition technology. The last 20 minutes of the webinar will be set up for audience members to ask questions to the school nutrition professional panel.

Learning Objectives

At the conclusion of the webinar, the participants will be able to:

  1. Why fresh produce is associated with increased risk of foodborne illness and how to identify types of fresh produce that are considered potentially hazardous
  2. Best practices for handling fresh produce in schools including recommendations for classrooms and salad bars
  3. Strategies for training school nutrition staff to handle fresh produce

1 CEU will be available to SNA members.
