Kids across the country are headed back to school and leaving their summer daytime eating habits behind (for better or worse). Do you have insight or advice for parents to go along with the USDA nutrition standards for the foods sold in schools? Are there similar guidelines you might recommend for parents to help them make good choices in the after-school snack options they make available to their children? Offering your perspective or simply sharing this nutrition standard information with parents is a great way to show them your commitment to their child’s well-being.
Take a look at the USDA’s “Smart Snacks in School” infographic below and think about the opportunities you have to connect with parents during this back-to-school season.
