NSLW Resources

Order Today!


August 15, 2016 Dear Child Nutrition Director: Let’s go shopping! There are new resources available to you to help promote excellence in school nutrition and obtain valuable feedback. The Texas Department of Agriculture (TDA) has launched a catalogue to offer one-stop shopping to support successful 2016 National School Lunch Week (NSLW) celebrations, October 10-14. No coupons or special offers are required because everything in this exciting new catalogue is available at no cost to you! Inside the catalogue you will find ballot boxes, ballots and “National Take Your Parents to Lunch Day” invitations. During NSLW, encourage students to “Vote for a Winning Lunch” using these new resources. Order all the items to complement and strengthen the “Vote for a Winning Lunch” theme reflected in the cafeteria posters you will receive from TDA. You will also be able to access suggested menus, shopping lists, morning announcements, a menu calendar template, and more. Remember, you can build your NSLW celebrations around TDA’s Local Products Challenge to market your healthy meals and leverage the appeal of Texas agriculture while earning statewide recognition for your efforts. Participating in these initiatives supports your dedication to connecting children with good nutrition so they can grow up healthy and learn what it takes to succeed. Whether this is your first or one of many NSLW celebrations you have participated in, TDA resources are invaluable in reinforcing nutritional messages and encouraging students to purchase the healthy meals you and your staff provide every school day. But resources are limited, so I encourage you to place your order today. As we continue to champion special events like NSLW and the Local Products Challenge, please know that you have TDA’s sustained gratitude for the work you do throughout the year to ensure students in Texas embrace the principles of the 3E’s of Healthy Living — Education, Exercise and Eating Right. Sincerely,

Angela Olige Assistant Commissioner Food and Nutrition AO/LB/lb

National School Lunch Week Gets Presidential Proclamation Schools have celebrated National School Lunch Week since 1962 when Congress passed a joint resolution to recognize the school lunch program with a special week. Since that time presidential proclamations have underscored the significance of the event and encouraged cafeterias to use the official occasion to highlight the benefits of school nutrition. The Texas Department of Agriculture (TDA) supports these efforts in the Lone Star State by providing a range of resources schools can use to celebrate and give their celebrations a Texas twist. TDA’s National School Lunch Week campaign goal is always to challenge students and staff to try new foods offered in the cafeteria during the five days of festivities and for the rest of the year. TDA wants to raise student awareness about the importance of eating a healthy school lunch each day.

Vote for a Winning Lunch! In 2016, The Texas Department of Agriculture’s theme for National School Lunch Week is “Vote for a Winning Lunch!” and Texas children will have the opportunity to vote for their favorite school lunch candidate. TDA has created special ballots and ballot boxes exclusively for schools in Texas. The voting materials can be used during National School Lunch Week, October 10-14, and throughout the year. When children have a voice in school nutrition, they are prepared to make the healthy choices that will govern their future success. This election year, students will declare victory for good nutrition during National School Lunch Week.

Celebrate Texas Agriculture and Local Products in Schools Farm to school activities like Farm Fresh Fridays provide a solid foundation for establishing lifelong healthy habits, promoting student health and strengthening local economies. Farm Fresh Fridays offers a new and exciting way to engage young minds and help students develop strong, sustainable connections to local food, farmers and ranchers. Plus, it adds local flavor to school menus and teaches students about Texas agriculture when they enjoy local products in school meals. The Local Products Challenge tasks schools to use more Texas products in cafeteria meals and recognizes participants that complete the challenge.

Pledge participation in the 2016 Local Products Challenge today!

You Art What You Eat! STUDENT ART CONTEST In the spring of 2016, TDA gave Texas students a chance to influence the marketing of NSLW with the first ‘You Art What You Eat’ art contest. Young artists were asked to create their own advertisement representing this year’s theme. TDA has incorporated the winning entries into posters that will be distributed to all Texas schools for National School Lunch Week 2016, as well as displayed in the State Capitol March 1–6, 2017.

Success Stories

The Child Nutrition Department at Magnolia ISD celebrated National School Lunch Week 2015 by introducing elementary school students to Texas fresh produce in a variety of menu items. Some of the Texas products and menu items students enjoyed include cilantro brown rice, fresh watermelon, “Strawberry Fields” salad, rosy applesauce and Texas citrus fruits.

During the 2015 National School Lunch Week Coppell Independent School District brought new meaning to the term culinary arts. The nutrition staff used food art featuring fresh fruits and vegetables to illustrate this year’s Texas Department of Agriculture National School Lunch Week theme “Discover the Great Plate of Texas with a Healthy Lunch.” Texas pumpkins took center stage at Sanger ISD in 2014. The child nutrition department made a special effort to get the youngest students excited about NSLW by bringing special activities to Chisholm Trail Elementary. One day during NSLW the assistant superintendent and deputy assistant dressed in fun Texas attire and serving the students in the Chisholm Trail cafeteria. Each class at the school also decorated a pumpkin using only fresh fruits and vegetables as the decorations and all the pumpkins were grown in Texas.

National School Lunch TDA’s NSLW Marketplace offers one-stop shopping for schools preparing to celebrate National School Lunch Week. NSLW Marketplace is a catalogue school nutrition professionals can use to peruse the various options before making selections. Schools can choose the resources they want to request per campus and TDA will provide them free of charge.

STUDENT BALLOTS

BALLOT BOX Early polling indicates this vibrantly colored and specially shaped ballot box will inspire students to cast their “Vote for a Winning Lunch!” The “Vote for a Winning Lunch” messaging and slot for depositing ballots will grab the attention of all students and the top of the box even tilts toward the voter to make depositing a ballot easier.

Your students will be eager to provide feedback you can use when they see these child nutrition “Vote for a Winning Lunch” ballots. Students can rate the meal using the system outlined on the visually appealing card and provide comments about whether or not they’d like to see it on the menu again.

You can request these resources on page 18 of this catalogue.

Next week is National School Lunch Week and all week long we can “Vote for a Winning Lunch.” A winning lunch has great candidates from five groups — whole grains, fruits, vegetables, low-fat dairy and lean protein. Go to the cafeteria to meet and eat all the healthy foods. Some of them might be local Texas products. One of the home grown products in the cafeteria is the National School Lunch Week poster from the Texas Department of Agriculture. A second grader from San Antonio drew the picture for the You Art What You Eat! contest. You can enter the art contest next year. Next week we will learn more about the foods that will lead you to a healthy future. Today is the first day of National School Lunch Week and Texas students are voting for a winning lunch. Let’s see what the whole grain campaign offers. Whole wheat always wins when you are enjoying bread, pasta, tortillas and pizza crust. Corn comes in first for wrapping a taco. Whole grain rice runs ahead of the others in the rice race. Cast your vote for a winning lunch and the farmers across the whole state of Texas who grow those grains. Did you know Texas farmers produce enough wheat each year to make 9 billion loaves of whole wheat bread? Whole grain is the name to remember when you vote for a winning lunch in Texas.

TUESDAY—FRUITS

It’s National School Lunch Week and students across Texas will “Vote for a Winning Lunch.” Any healthy food election needs red, white and blue fruit that grows in Texas. Blueberries are blue, strawberries are red and both grow in Texas. The white inside a Texas apple completes the picture. Other Texas fruit comes in a rainbow of colors like orange, purple, green and yellow. The Texas red grapefruit is the state fruit of Texas and it is rich in vitamin C. Your body needs vitamin C to grow and repair your skin and muscles. Fruit can also be crispy or juicy, sweet or sour, sliced or whole but it is always tasty and easy to eat. Just wash it, peel it, slice it or bite right in. Enjoying Texas fruits like berries, watermelon, grapefruit and many others is a great way to “Vote for a Winning Lunch!”

Next week all students are encouraged to “Vote for a Winning Lunch” during National School Lunch Week. Go to the cafeteria to meet and eat great candidates from five groups — whole grains, fruits, vegetables, low-fat dairy and lean protein. Local elections will include Texas products. Speaking of Texas products, the design for the National School Lunch Week poster from the Texas Department of Agriculture was inspired by a Texas high school student. You can enter the You Art What You Eat! Contest next year and possibly have your work featured on the poster in 2017.Support Texas foods and good nutrition all next week and find out why Texas is the best place to be when you cast your vote for a winning lunch. Today is the first day of National School Lunch Week and we will consider what the whole grain campaign has to offer for your nutrition future. First, whole wheat always wins when you eat bread, pasta, tortillas or pizza. Corn tortillas are winners for tortillas and tacos. Whole grain rice runs ahead of the others in the rice race. Cast your vote for a winning lunch and the farmers across the whole state of Texas who grow those grains. Did you know Texas farmers produce enough wheat each year to make about 9 billion loaves of whole wheat bread? Whole grain is the name to remember when you “Vote for a Winning Lunch.”

THURSDAY—DAIRY

When you get moooo-ving to the cafeteria, make low-fat milk and dairy from Texas cows part of your winning lunch. Milk and dairy like low-fat cheese are sources of calcium. Calcium is good for the more than 200 bones in a person’s body. Did you know that about half those bones are in the hands and feet? You can get your hands on local dairy products thanks to the 1 billion gallons of milk produced by Texas dairy farmers each year. This is National School Lunch Week and you can make milk the running mate for a winning lunch campaign.

FRIDAY—LEAN PROTEIN

FRIDAY—LEAN PROTEIN

We are halfway through National School Lunch Week and today we vote for veggies! Did you remember that it’s National School Lunch Week? If you forgot, eating vegetables like broccoli, cabbage and spinach may help you remember things like that. It may even help you remember what you learned in class when you take a science test or a spelling test. If you want to see better at night or recognize colors better, the vitamin A in sweet potatoes can help that. Remember to eat your vegetables so get all the healthy vitamins you need to be smart and healthy. Cast your vote for a winning lunch with a vegetable on your plate today!

National School Lunch Week ends today. We have learned about fun ways to vote for good nutrition with grains, fruits, vegetables, and dairy foods. There is still one thing missing from our winning lunch campaign … lean protein! Healthy protein comes from foods like lean meat, fish, nuts, eggs and beans. All these provide vitamins and minerals. Texas produces lots of protein and leads the nation in cattle production. Lean beef comes from cattle and Texas produces enough beef to make 17 billion hamburger patties. That’s enough to stretch to the moon and back more than twice. This week we have traveled a long way to learn about foods that make up a healthy, winning lunch. We now have the knowledge we need to make smart choices when we “Vote for a Winning Lunch!”

During National School Lunch Week we have been voting for good nutrition with grains, fruits, vegetables, and dairy foods. Do you know what’s missing? It’s lean protein! Healthy proteins are part of every school lunch and come from foods like lean meat, fish, nuts, eggs and beans. All these provide valuable vitamins and minerals. Texas farmers and ranchers produce lots of protein and lead the nation in cattle production. Lean beef comes from cattle and Texas produces enough beef to make 17 billion hamburger patties. That’s enough to stretch to the moon and back more than twice. Regardless of how far you travel for good nutrition, make smart nutrition choices and “Vote for a Winning Lunch!”
