October is a busy month filled with fall activities, corn mazes, Halloween AND the celebration of National School Lunch Week!
October 10-14 is National School Lunch Week. This week nutrition educators and directors are encouraged to promote healthy lunch choices for students. Healthy lunches provide healthy options for children to learn about what foods are good for them and have a proper diet.
Where do you start? Right here at Learning ZoneXpress! We have a variety of resources from banners to bulletin boards that can encourage healthy eating throughout your home and within schools. For example, our 1 Terrific Tray™ Bulletin Board Kit is a simple way to get your children involved in what a healthy lunch tray would look like at school. Teach students to make healthy choices and build the best school lunch tray with this great visual resource, simple reminder to include all food groups at school lunch for the best school day.
How are you going to celebrate School Lunch Week? We have some great archived blog posts about smart school lunches for some ideas but we'd love to hear more of yours! Use #NationalSchoolLunchWeek to share your ideas and photos on social media!
