“Feeding a child is a profound act. The foods we invite into our children’s bodies determine how their organs will develop and function the rest of their lives.” – Dr. Alan Greene

Smart Foods is a proud supplier of the National School Lunch & Breakfast Programs. We have been an industry leader in offering delicious whole grain snacks and entrees and look forward to helping to close the “whole grains gap.” Recent changes to the NSLP meal requirements make school lunch one of your child’s healthiest meal opportunities of the day!

Did you know it is now federal law that children are offered fruit, vegetables and whole grains at every school lunch? We acknowledge that introducing new foods to children can be challenging, but our team is up to the task. This is an exciting nutritional improvement for school lunches and it will make a significant difference to both your child’s short and long term health. Smart Foods looks forward to helping make this positive transition delicious and affordable nationwide.

Parent support is crucial to this effort. Here are a few ways you can help:

  • Encouraging your child to be adventurous and try new foods offered at school.
  • Offer to volunteer at your local school cafeteria.
  • Help positively reinforce the difference whole grains make to our individual, long-term health. Our favorite illustration is below!
