Is there a salad bar in your children’s school cafeteria? Would it make a school performance difference if your kids ate salad at lunch?  Do your kids even eat salad? 

Often, the required ½ cup serving of a fruit or vegetable offered to your kids at school is being tossed in the garbage.  And, kids are more likely to eat fruit and vegetables when given a choice. These are just two of the reasons why there is value having a salad bar in school.  Yet, cost often stands in the way.

There is a national movement to make salad bars available to kids.  Spokesperson for “Let’s Move Salad Bars to Schools” Jackie Newgent RD (The Natural Culinary Nutritionist) will give you the inside heads up on how to secure one for your school.  As a Registered Dietitian, our co-host, Tracee Yablon-Brenner, RD (Real Food Moms) will confirm why school children absolutely need to eat fresh produce so they can be the best they can be!

Come into our Family Food Experts Kitchen on W4WN and W4CY radio.  Get the salad bar scoop for your children’s school.

… for the health of your family,
