Back to School and the Value of School Meals

August 28, 2018

School meals nourish millions of students daily by helping them get the nutrients they need for growth and development. This is especially true for the 1 in 6 children who live in food insecure households.

National Dairy Council, School Nutrition Association and Midwest Dairy have partnered to develop a report and a series of short videos featuring experts from pediatricians to dietitians and beyond who discuss the value of school meals. These resources can help health and wellness professionals and school stakeholders communicate the importance of school meals to their respective audiences.

Please join us in celebrating the value school meals bring to students during back to school time and throughout the school year.
