sn-april22-coverEvery child’s food journey is going to be a little bit different—some will try anything from a young age while others will be hesitant all the way up until adulthood. But you have influence in the way your students approach school meals and, in turn, their food journey. This month’s Food Issue of School Nutrition looks at all the creative ways you can encourage new tastes and textures, introducing children to new nutritional opportunities at any age.
