September 30, 2021 - USDA’s Team Nutrition initiative invites you to join us in sharing Stronger with School Meals materials with schools, families, and children. School meals, and the school nutrition professionals that provide them, help children be strong physically (through good nutrition) and mentally (through the sharing of mealtimes in person or virtually). Celebrate the school community and promote healthy foods with these fun new school meals materials. 

Materials include: 
  • An Infographic for teachers and parents (in English and Spanish) 
  • An Activity Booklet for elementary-aged students 
  • Five stickers for students 
  • Two buttons for school nutrition professionals 
  • Two Thank You cards that parents, teachers, staff, and students can use to thank school nutrition professionals 

All materials are available for download here. Printed versions will be made available this fall only for Team Nutrition Schools. Schools can join Team Nutrition Schools or update their school’s information here.

Team Nutrition has also updated two tip sheets for program operators who are interested in providing bulk meals in the National School Lunch Program’s Seamless Summer Option or the Child and Adult Care Food Program. See more here.
