International School Meals Day

March 6 will be the second annual International School Meals Day.  Since December 2010, the UK and US have been sharing examples of policies and practices in promoting healthy eating in schools.  With similar challenges and successes, both countries wanted to find a way to raise awareness of the importance of good nutrition amongst children and foster healthy eating habits both at home and at school.  These desires lead to International School Meals Day.  International School Meals Day helps to emphasize the connection between healthy eating, education and better learning.  The theme for this year’s International School Meals Day is “Food Stories”.  Stories relating to food are rich with tradition and culture.  Looking for a conversation starter?  Share a food story with your family.
