Don’t have the technical resources to set up tablets or other fancy means of tracking taste test results? Bozeman (Mont.) High School shows that simple—and colorful—can be a highly effective approach. (We admire the savvy reporting choices, too, focusing on the positive “Tried It” rather than collecting dislikes.) EASY, BREEZY NUTRITION ED Check out this simple photo collage from the Nutrition and Foodservices Team at Chandler (Ariz.) Unified School District (CUSD). Eye-catching and intriguing, it engages the audience to take a few moments to reflect on foods that have been served in the cafeteria. Not overly complex to design, it could be updated and shared once a week during a month-long farm to school promotion. We found it on the CUSD Nutrition Facebook page, but it could also be a part of a cafeteria or serving area display or an activity sheet distributed to youngsters. The Crunch Bunch While SN couldn’t find reference to a nationally organized campaign, cafeteria teams in at least three states (Minnesota, North Carolina and Tennessee) celebrated “Crunch Time” this fall. We love seeing both kids and staff add a little crunch to their lunch by eating select fruits and veggies—especially apples! This peanut butter-and-jelly Mona Lisa is both ingenious and hilarious! What a great way to redefine “food art” in Greeley-Evans School District 6, Greeley, Colo. Fall certainly equals fun, as school cafeterias enjoy Halloween, Veterans Day and Thanksgiving with special costumes, décor, menus and guests.
