strawberry agua

clown juggling
To generate student excitement, San Diego Unified School District had its schools apply in a raffle to have the local circus perform at a general assembly.
vegetable variety
Every March, to celebrate National Nutrition Month, Windham Raymond School District makes its way through the alphabet by featuring produce from A to Z.
colorful salad
Each summer we run a four-week program that focuses on adding a wider variety of fruits and vegetables to employees’ diets.

name cue card
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.
dietitian-food-fruit
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.
