Sometimes the hardest part of getting kids to try school meals is convincing their parents of the quality, nutritional content and convenience of your offerings. That's why we developed Cafeteria Connection. The newsletter is written for a parent audience and speaks to the merits of school meal programs while also providing some nutritional tips and tricks parents can try at home.
We recently added a new issue to the newsletter series. The latest edition, "Broadening Appeal of School Lunch Entices Students," highlights how school lunch programs have expanded to attract and hold students' interest throughout the year. The issue delves into the way NutriStudents K-12 builds its menus to appeal to students and beat menu fatigue throughout the year, including:
The issue also mentions that districts often have multiple options from which students can choose every day. Many districts offer two hot entrees, a cold deli option, a la carte service and a fruit and vegetable (salad) bar to appeal to most every student.
In addition to the new issue, our growing library of Cafeteria Connection includes the following:
Each issue of Cafeteria Connection has a form field where you can add either your logo or text information to tailor it to your school/district.
You can access and download the full library in the client portal under Tools & Resources, Promotional Tools.
