April 2015
View Digital Edition

Each and every year, school nutrition professionals look forward to the chance to get creative and celebrate school meals with National School Breakfast and National School Lunch Week. However, between tightening budgets, long hours and weary brains, it’s difficult to continually be creative with cafeteria promotions, decorations and other special events during these times.

The April 2015 issue of School Nutrition aims to help you out by offering up tips, ideas and resources for the 2015 National School Lunch Week, “School Lunch Snapshot,” and the 2016 National School Breakfast Week, “Wake Up! To School Breakfast.” After all, it’s never too early to start planning! You might also be inspired by a look back at the 2014 NSLW, “Get in the Game with School Lunch;” we have photos and reports of the exciting events from school lunch celebrations all around the country.

But the April issue is also jam-packed with other vital information, such as a preview of the 2015 Dietary Guidelines. Writer Sarah Murphy, MS, SNA’s program manager, takes a look at how the guidelines come together every five years, as well as some of the highlights from the current report. This is something bound to affect school meals, so make sure you keep current on the latest news.

If you weren’t able to attend the January School Nutrition Industry Conference in Sunny Phoenix, School Nutrition has a full wrap-up so you can see the important goings-on that occurred. And, of course, no issue of SN would be complete with the Food Focus section; this month, school meal advocate Dayle Hayes, MS, RD, gives the scoop on sugar — and whether it’s really the villain it’s made out to be.

The April issue also touches on how to leave a legacy with the School Nutrition Foundation through your will or final testament, a look at the new Congress and a primer on food allergies as they relate to school meal operations.
