At this site you will find resources for school nutrition professionals, educators, and parents, plus fun food games for kids. There is a school milk financial calculator, lessons connecting school meals and classroom learning, and lessons to teach food groups. You can find recipes, including the results of a snack recipe contest (first place: rocket salad; second place: sweet 'n' cool fruity snack bars; third place: peanut butter chew balls).
