School Nutrition Returns to the Most Important Meal of the Day

This month, SchoolNutrition is all about breakfast, from looking into state legislative policies to tempting teens (a notoriously difficult demographic to capture) to enjoy school breakfast more regularly. Take a look at what’s between the covers of SN in November 2015:

  • Starting a breakfast in the classroom program requires more than the efforts of just the nutrition staff. In “From Ire to Inspired,” writer Christina Uticone talks to other stakeholders, including teachers, principals, janitors and school board members, to see how and why they support BIC.
  • Get an update on Partners for Breakfast in the Classroom (PBIC) from SNA Program Manager Sarah Murphy. She fills you in on where PBIC has been, what it’s doing now and where it’s going in the future.
  • If you’re struggling to get teens to eat school breakfast, you’re not the only one. Writer Dayle Hayes, MS, RD, in “Twenty Ways to Feed More Teens in the Morning,” shares 20 top tips from school nutrition veterans on how to encourage high-schoolers to take advantage of the morning meal.
  • Have you ever wondered how school breakfast legislation is created? SNA’s former director of state affairs, Nichole Westin, shares the basics of bills supporting breakfast in “Breakfast: The Most Important Legislation of the Day.”
  • It’s your favorite gal, Ruby Reader! She returns for the annual Where’s RubyRoaming? competition, and youcould win! Visit Ruby’s personal webpage for details on how to enter. It requires clipping out or downloading SN’s “flat Ruby,” and submitting a photo featuring the SchoolNutrition mascot.
  • Prepping for Valentine’s Day already? February will be here before you know it. Check out regulation-adherent recipes in “Follow Your Heart,” by writer Karly Kolaja, as well as other ideas for celebrating the holiday of love in the cafeteria.
  • Plus: A profile of two SNA national honorees, Ann Roberson and Liz Randall, SNS; a primer on implementing cycle menus; a wrap of National School Breakfast Wrap 2015 (See if your school made it into print!); and reflections of waste management and minimization efforts from school nutrition directors.

Coming Next Month in School Nutrition: In December 2015, the magazine takes a look at technology being used in school lunchrooms. Look for your copy in early December or visit!
