Take Action for Healthy School Food
Share your successes and challenges with healthy school foods for a chance to win a nutrition grant for your school. NEA’s Health Information Network wants to hear from educators, students, and families for a national contest titled “The Smart Snacks Roundup.”
Since the USDA Smart Snacks regulations went into effect last summer, fruit, vegetables, and whole grains have been added to public school menus across the nation. The contest will create an online forum where schools can share “best practices” for implementing the new regulations.
Contest participants must submit a creative photo, video, or narrative describing how their school has implemented Smart Snacks.
