School Nutrition Training Program

Strong4Life's School Nutrition Program online training is based on Cornell University’s Smarter Lunchrooms Movement, designed to encourage kids to make more nutritious food choices in the lunch line. To make smart serving easier, we've pinpointed the most effective (and fun!) ways school nutrition managers and staff can get kids to want to choose smart foods. We also developed an innovative toolkit—specifically for Georgia schools—to help transform the cafeteria environment.
