National School Lunch Week (NSLW) 2011 begins Monday, October 10 and runs through the week to October 14. It’s important that we help students understand where food comes from and the nutritional benefits that go along with the food they consume. During this week, the School Nutrition Association, as well as teachers and educators around the country will help highlight to students the benefit that school lunch can provide for kids to grow strong and healthy.
In an effort to support this year’s National School Lunch Week theme, “School Lunch – Let’s Grow Healthy” we have created an infographic, “The Childhood Obesity Epidemic” with statistics sharing lifestyle, nutritional, activity-related and consequential facts relating to children. Please share this infographic as part of your educational outreach and campaigns focused on the NSLW theme. We encourage you to help us spread this important message!
