SNA National Survey Reveals Increased Efforts to Promote Healthy Choices


SNA’s School Nutrition Operations Report: The State of School Nutrition 2016

A new national survey of school meal program operators reveals that more school cafeterias are utilizing strategies to increase consumption of fruits, vegetables and other healthy choices, while expanding student access to school meals through programs such as the Community Eligibility Provision. The findings are part of SNA’s School Nutrition Operations Report: The State of School Nutrition 2016, based on survey responses from nearly 1,000 school nutrition directors nationwide.

“Just like parents, school nutrition professionals know that offering kids healthier options is only half the battle—we also have to entice them to eat those nutritious choices,” said SNA President Becky Domokos-Bays, PhD, RD, SNS. “Despite tight meal program budgets, school nutrition professionals are employing creative tactics to promote healthy menu options as they welcome students back to the school cafeteria.” Read the full story in SNA’s press release.
