We educated students, parents and staff about local products and healthy eating. Vendors donated prizes to give to kids who filled out surveys for feedback on their products.

We put all the information they need to know—temperature times, code blue, etc.—on a cue card in their badge holders, so they always have it with them.

We use technology to give students a chance to connect directly with me in our “Ask the Dietitian” series.

We just got a grant that will be for 1- to 5-year-olds so that we can work with the county health department to do some outreach at area supermarkets to help them market their healthier items.

I wrote a manual to spell out how we should be purchasing food to help us improve the health of our patients and employees.

We created an approved foods tool, so parents and teachers know what food items meet the Smart Snacks regs.

We have real, usable, full-size plates that we mix in with our regular plates to raise awareness of healthy dining balance.

We have a kiosk stand with iPads that the students, faculty and staff can use to look up nutritionals, allergens, etc., on every product we make, as well as the nutritionals at our franchises.

In order to encourage customers to eat more healthfully, we reduced the price of our salad bar to $4.99 per pound, from $6.99. At the same time, we increased the price of sodas.
