"Level Up" theme announced for National School Lunch Week 2018

The Texas Department of Agriculture's theme for 2018 National School Lunch Week (NSLW) is "Level Up with a Healthy School Lunch!" This year’s theme plugs into students’ affinity for Video Games!  When children pick up a healthy school meal they pick up a controller they can use to win the healthy lifestyle game. TDA's NSLW campaign goal is always to challenge students and staff to try new foods offered in the cafeteria. We also challenge you to take your student’s love of video games and help connect the dots of how the benefits of eating healthy meals at school impacts their lives. So encourage your students to be team players and enjoy a healthy school lunch so they can have the energy and charisma to make winning choices for the rest of the school year!
