We all know about the USDA new dietary standards for the school lunchroom. (If you need a refresher, we wrote about them earlier this month.) The standards are based on the USDA MyPlate dietary guidelines, which as you may recall were updates to the old Food Pyramid that were unveiled last summer. A key piece of the guideline is make half your plate fruit and vegetable.
We’re all striving to offer healthy school lunch options tour students – but offering is only half the battle. How can we encourage kids to make good nutrition decisions in the lunch line? A little color health promotion never hurts! That is why Learning ZoneXpress has created a line of 1 Great Tray products that promote healthy eating. The latest addition to the nutrition education resources – three new static cling decals…
The static cling uses the USDA MyPlate concept to highlight the healthy lunch ideas offered in school lunchrooms and support the food service workers who are also reminding kids to make their school lunches healthy lunches.
It's a nutritional addition to any school lunch room decoration plan.
The sheet of rectangular 3" x 6" static clings feature the five food groups:
- Whole Grains
- Lean Protein
- Dark Green Vegetables
- Red & Orange Vegetables
- Starchy Vegetables
- Beans & Peas
- Other Vegetables
1 Great Tray™ Food Group static clings stick to the serving line sneeze-guard without adhesive and come on a single sheet for easy storage in your school lunchroom. The cling-pack includes four additional 1 Great Tray™ logo clings to decorate your line.
