Speaker Spotlight

Jim Painter, PhD, RD
Food Psychologist

In your opinion, what are the three most important trends and issues impacting school nutrition professionals today?

  • Sustainability of nutritious food.
  • Evolvement of classic dishes.
  • Education for food service staff and students.

Give us a sneak peek of what you have planned for SNIC! What session(s) will you be leading?
SNIC17 will feature tons of action-packed sessions and in-demand topics. Attendees will walk away engaged and thinking about innovation. My session is titled “Fats In Vogue, What Woes, Uh-Oh Gmos."

One fun fact most attendees don’t know about you:
I will try any food, if you tell me it is good for me (e.g. a whole bulb of garlic on one PB&J sandwich!)
