The time is now to remind parents about upcoming celebrations for #NSLW19! As we prepare our #SchoolLunchPlaylists, encourage parents to join the conversation and invite them to have lunch with their child using the following resources from SNA.

Studies show that school lunches are more likely to include fruit, vegetables and dairy than those from home. This information is in the fun new NSLW 2019 Infographic available in English and Spanish. If you haven’t already, jazz up the buzz you’ve created even more by downloading and printing copies or sharing this infographic on your social media channels!

Another fun and helpful tool with ideas and tips to get your crowd of parents excited about what’s on the menu for their child’s school lunch playlist is the NSLW 2019 Toolkit. Ideas and tips include giving parents a free lunch coupon for an upcoming meal, providing parents with a family-sized recipe of a student-favorite menu item to make at home, reaching parents through their preferred social media platforms Twitter and Facebook and more!

National School Lunch Week 2019 - Parents at School Lunch

Amplify your engagement further by inviting parents to enjoy school lunch with their child on National Take Your Parents to Lunch Day (Wednesday, October 16, 2019), or any other day that works for them. Inviting parents to lunch will be a good way for them to get up close and personal with the healthy options being served to their child. This is also a great way for them to see how far school lunch has come since they attended school. As parents make plans to attend lunch with their child, encourage them to review the school lunch menu, and keep the conversation about healthy eating going outside of the cafeteria by following the SNA TrayTalk Facebook page and blog for school lunch innovations and success stories.

No matter how you inform parents about NSLW 2019, make sure to keep them in rhythm with their child’s school lunch playlist but most of all, have fun!
