View Digital Edition  

A note about our updated digital edition: If you’re a regular reader of our digital edition, you’ve likely noticed changes to the design and navigation. School Nutrition now has one mobile responsive version of its digital edition. That means there’s no difference in how the issue looks on a computer versus on a mobile device.

Though you’ll no longer see the familiar dashboard you may have used before, the new design incorporates many of your favorite features and functions, such as the ability to share individual articles or whole issues; the robust search engine; and quick-scrolling capabilities.

We know that website design changes take time and practice to embrace, so we encourage you to use the Tutorial (or click Help) to become more familiar with the layout and functions of the new design platform. 

Happy reading!
