At Judson ISD in San
Antonio students had a chance to meet actual candidates from the “Vote for a Winning Lunch” campaign during National School Lunch Week. The child nutrition team sent candidates Mr. Cookie and Ms. Sandwich out on the campaign trail to several elementary campuses.
- The Judson ISD nutrition team developed these descriptions of the candidates:
- Ms. Sandwich is a healthy lunch option with whole grain breads, vegetables and delicious fruits. She wants you to vote for a healthy lunch by always picking whole grains, fruits and vegetables for lunch!
Mr. Cookie is also made with whole grains, but he does not have the healthy fruits and vegetables that students need to learn and play well.
Students were encouraged to cast their ballots for the candidate who best represents a healthy school lunch. The students had a lot of fun meeting their candidates and casting ballots at lunch time.
“We believe this was a very successful means of getting the students excited and involved in this year’s NSLW,” said Carlie Rauschuber of the Judson ISD Child Nutrition Department. Photo courtesy of Judson ISD.
