During the week of October 15-19, schools across Texas celebrated National School Lunch Week (NSLW). The School Nutrition Association (SNA) theme for 2012 was “School Lunch – What’s Cooking?” Schools used SNA and Texas Department of Agriculture (TDA) materials to highlight the great work of the state's school nutrition professionals and encourage students to eat nutritious school meals.
Schools work hard to provide students with healthy meals that are delivered in a way that is unique to each school. NSLW showcases their daily operations, highlights new menu options and promotes the link between good nutrition and academic achievement. Materials for 2013 NSLW will be available here at SquareMeals.org in the spring and summer. Schools will receive updates from TDA and their Education Service Centers regarding the availability of these materials.
