    How can parents get involved in school meals programs?

    • Getting involved in school meals programs is easy. Start with these easy steps:

      • Review cafeteria menus with your child and be encouraging about trying new menu items. Try new foods – especially fruits and vegetables – at home and your child may be more willing to try these foods at school.

      • Visit the school cafeteria to make your own observations and have lunch. Check with the principal first to make sure that is allowed!

      • Introduce yourself to the school nutrition staff at your child’s school. They can answer questions or concerns about everything from product offerings to meal preparation methods to waiting time in line.
