Digital signage encourages healthy eating

Three television screens present the menu and promote healthy options.

May 22—At Amherst Middle School, in Massachusetts, the cafeteria has upgraded both their school nutrition and technology with the installation of three new televisions.

The three flat-screen televisions installed last month serve as information centers for the cafeteria, and soon the entire school. SAU 39 Food Service Director Danielle Collins said the digital signs are used to display the cafeteria menu, as well as promote nutritious choices.

Collins said that the televisions will showcase healthier options and engage the students through facts and trivia. Art students will even take pictures of the food options, which will be shown throughout the day.
