School nutrition professionals welcome student input and involvement in efforts to improve school menus. Many school districts host student taste tests or appoint student advisory councils, allowing students to be a part of choosing new menu options. Talk with your school cafeteria manager to find out how you can get involved.
Also, the School Nutrition Association, with the support of the Milk Processors Education Program (MilkPEP) develops a themed campaign each year to promote National School Lunch Week every October. The campaigns help students learn that eating a healthy and nutritious school lunch is essential to getting the most out of their busy day.
