Today, 9 in 10 children eat more sodium than what is recommended and it can lead to serious health problems. Because most children eat more than half their meals each day at school, it’s important that the food kids eat at school help curb this issue. Spice It Up! Ways to Shake the Sodium in School Meals PowerPoint Presentation and Training Resources highlights the problem of too much sodium and the restrictions placed on school meals. Spice it Up! offers practical solutions for reducing sodium in school meals, including salt-free spice blends and recipes that are school-tested and student-approved, to help school foodservice meet school lunch regulations. Interactive activities included in the training resources are perfect for school nutrition training sessions and continuing education opportunities.
