Healthy Food Choices in Schools August 10, 2017 Print Friendly and PDF

In this webinar, Heidi Kessler, Executive Director of the Smarter Lunchrooms National Office at Cornell University introduces the new and improved Smarter Lunchrooms Scorecard. The Smarter Lunchrooms Scorecard was originally released in 2013 and is used in thousands of schools across the country to measure improvements in the school nutrition environment. The Scorecard contains evidence based strategies to increase participation, increase consumption and decrease waste of healthy foods.

The NEW Scorecard has been updated from 100 points to 60 points for brevity and clarity. It has also been updated to include new research, new definitions, applicability to all grade levels, and has been reorganized into 8 sections with strategies listed in order of approximate difficulty.

Join Heidi for a walkthrough of the new Scorecard with tips for application and use as well as recommendations for shifting to this new version.
