Last summer, I had the opportunity to get involved with the School Nutrition Association by attending the 2012 SNA conference in Denver. I learned so much about the new school nutrition standards and the creative things being done to make meals affordable and healthy for school districts nationwide (check out the SNA Conference Photo Gallery I posted of the pics I took while there).
Today, the SNA is launching a fun ‘Healthy Lunches Kids Love’ photo contest I wanted to let you know about. Get involved, and you could win $250! It’s perfect for those of you who like to photograph their meals like I do. 🙂 Details:
Submit a snapshot and brief description of your kids’ lunch favorites on Facebook.com/TrayTalk. Ideas include lunches containing colorful fruits and veggies, whole grains, lean proteins and low-fat dairy. Entries will be judged on overall balance of nutrition, kid appeal, creativity and ease of meal preparation. Winning lunch inspirations and recipes will be shared with parents and schools across the country. The first prize is a $250 gift card!
Submissions accepted January 21st-31st. Head on over to the Tray Talk Facebook Page to enter. Good luck!
